Hi,

Does 9800-CL wireless controller will work on Nutanix? I didn't find any official supporting document.

                                  - If an underlying supported hypervisor is being used then it will work :

Thank you @marce1000 

KVM qcow2 images are supported on Nutanix. Does Cisco TAC will support if there are technical issues post deployment?

With vWLC 9800-CL with 300+ APs, any specific limitations or performance considerations, I should be aware of when scaling to this size.

Any caveats with specific features?Any limitation on throughput?

                 -If a supported environment is being used : yes

   - Start reading from : Cisco Catalyst 9800-CL for private cloud  to get  an idea of performance and throughput parameters

              - I have no Nutanix specific info's on that , perhaps discuss with a local reseller ,

 - Beside earlier replies I would also like to point out that the various 9800-CL images can be downloaded without a service contract ; that give you the opportunity to test a basic deployment of for instance a qcow2 image on Nutanix.   Check if you can get a deployment and or installation started without fatal hazards. It's a good check to start with ,

Is it still valid that 9800-CLs in an HA SSO need to be on the same physical host?

 

    - They don't but there are advanced gotchas that may come up if they are not on the same physical host ; such as that the in between switches must use the same vlan tagging , for the various networks (vlans/subnets)  defined in the controllers ,
