Install NGT on a Linux machine

By | August 14, 2017

Mount NGT on the Linux VM. The graphical Linux deployments auto-discover the CD-ROM and mount the CD-ROM appropriately. For non-graphical Linux deployments, use the following procedure.


  • Python 2.6 or 2.7 has been installed
  • python-setuptools has been installed

Install Process

    • Log into the Linux VM.
    • Create a temporary folder and mount the content of the CD in the temporary folder.
      $ sudo mount /dev/sr0/mnt
    • Run the script.
      $ sudo /mnt/installer/linux/

After the installation finishes, Nutanix guest agents are installed on the VM and you can use the NGT features (cross-hypervisor disaster recovery, application-consistent snapshots with VSS on AHV, or in-place hypervisor conversion from ESXi to AHV).
