Nutanix : Run the NCC health check and collect the output direct on your desktop

NUTANIX CLUSTER CHECK (NCC) is a powerful tool that performs full cluster verification by executing many cheeks.  NCC can be run from the Prism console and for each execution, the ncc-output-lastest log will be generated and located on /home/nutanix/data/.

In this blog post, we will share a few quick tips on how to run the NCC Health Check on your CVM and collect the output directly on your desktop using PuTTY as the terminal.

STEP1: Change the Logging settings to capture outputs from the CLI. Name the log file, and then click browse to select the folder that the file will be saved in.

 Connect on any CVM and run the ncc health_checks run_all command:

nutanix@CVM:~$ ncc health_checks run_all

The health check will start running. This will take approximately 5 to 10 minutes

STEP3: When the health check is complete, run the following command: 

nutanix@CVM:~$ cat /home/nutanix/data/logs/ncc-output-latest.log

The entire output will be displayed and saved in the session log file.
