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.


STEP2:
 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.

Enjoy!
