When adding a Nutanix cluster to Hycu, the following warning message appears:
Failed to connect to Nutanix cluster: (401) Unauthorized
This means that the specified password is wrong or the user account that you use to add a Nutanix cluster does not have required REST API v3 permissions. So, specify the correct password or the user account that has access to REST API v3 granted.
Keep in mind that REST API v3 can be accessed only by:
Built-in Nutanix Prism admin account
When specifying the admin user, make sure to use lowercase. Otherwise, REST API v3 cannot be accessed.
Active Directory user
To grant a user REST API v3 access to an Active Directory account, do the following:
- Link the Nutanix cluster with the Active Directory.
- Map the Active Directory account to the Cluster Admin role.
- Through the Prism self-service portal, assign SSP administrator privileges to the user.
For details about the Prism web console, see Nutanix documentation.
