Nutanix Guest Tools Report Via REST API

Just a quick blog post about how you can verify what NGT version is installed in each of your VMs but fist I’ll list some links to other NGT related blog posts which you might find useful

The below script will give you information about each VM and its NGT status including:

  • Status
  • Reachable
    • True, False or N/A
  • Version
    • Version Number or N/A
  • Capabilities
    • self_service_restore,┬ávss_snapshot or N/A
  • ISO Mount State
    • Mounted, Unmounted or N/A

The report will look something like this after some Excel magic

The script can be downloaded from my GitHub repository

This script has been tested on AOS version 5.6, AHV version 20170830.115.
