Unofficial DPTPB Nutanix Dynamic Visio Shapes: Non-Dynamic mode

Having automation, like found in the DPTPB dynamic shapes which will automatically populate your shapes with additional shapes, is usually a good thing.

One could compare automation to using GUI. It makes life easier and there are safeguards preventing users from making mistakes.

However automation without ability to override or handle exceptions might not be such a good thing. You are limited to what the automation can do and you might not be able to handle exceptions. One way to handle exceptions would be to provide CLI access with more freedom to do things in more manual fashion.

To give users freedom to handle exceptions or by-pass automation, I’ve designed the Dynamic shapes in a way that still allows the shapes to be used in manual (non-dynamic) mode, instead of relying on the built-in automation. In manual mode users can combine shapes as they desire without the built-in automation restricting their choices. And best of all (for CLI haters), no CLI required…

Just bear in mind: With more freedom comes more responsibility.

Unofficial DPTPB Nutanix Dynamic Visio Shapes: NX-3155G-G7 & NX-3155G-G6

More in depth notes regarding NX-3155G-G7 & NX-3155G-G6 Dynamic Visio shapes.

While NX-3155G-G7/G6 front-view shapes are as easy to use any other dynamic shapes, mixing NICs and GPUs with NX-3155G-7 and NX-3155G-G6 rear view shapes has added some complexity.

You might save some headaches by checking this documentation before trying the NX-3155G-G7 and NX-3155G-G6 rear-view shapes, especially if you opt to NOT to use automated placement of NICs/GPUs and decide to place them manually. Even more so than with NX-3170-G6, which while slightly more complex than vanilla dynamic shapes, are nothing when compared to NX-3155G-Gx rear view shapes.
