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.
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.
