After you created a Nutanix Files monitoring plan, you receive the following error: Event ID 6503 Netwrix Auditor cannot configure Nutanix Files audit settings: Unexpected HTTP status code (Host name or ip already present.)

The likely cause: you used to have Netwrix Auditor add-on for Nutanix Files installed on the Netwrix server and the Netwrix server had already been configured as a partner server for Nutanix Files.

To address the issue, you can either:

specify another port for incoming connections in the item (Nutanix SMB shares)

OR

if the add-on’s installation folder has not been removed, unregister the partner server as described in item 5.7 of Nutanix Quick-Start Guide

OR

remove the partner server and notification policy from Nutanix manually:

  1. Open the File Server REST API Explorer REST API: https://<fileserver_ip>:9440/api/nutanix/v3/api_explorer/index.html
  2. Find the partner server node and click Show/Hide.
  3. Expand the POST /partner_servers/list node, specify {} in the get_entities_request field and click ‘Try it out’ to get the list of partner servers .
  4. Find the IP address of the Netwrix server and its corresponding UUID
  5. Expand the DELETE /partner_servers/ node, insert UUID and click ‘Try it out’.
  6. You will receive an error: “Delete/Modify notification policy <UUID> before deleting <UUID> partner server”. Note the UUID of the notification policy.
  7. Scroll up, find the notification_policy node and click Show/Hide.
  8. Expand the DELETE /notification_policies/ node, insert the notification’s policy UUID and click ‘Try it out’ to remove the notification policy.
  9. Scroll down back to the DELETE /partner_servers/ node, the UUID of the partner server should still be there, click ‘Try it out’ to remove the partner server.
