K1000 should support VirtIO drivers
With the growing popularity of virtualization hypervisors that require VirtIO drives, Quest should start supporting that. Nutanix is another example of an environment where VirtIO drivers are required. Everything else we have can handle it, K1000 is the only outlier.

Can anyone help me understand what needs to be done to get the K1000 working on Nutanix AHV, I downloaded and spun up V10.0.290 but networking doesn't seem to work.
*** Edit - I just downloaded and spun up V9.1.318 without issue then upgraded it to V10.0.290 using the kbin file.

I agree, we are in the process of migrating our core VM infrastructure from Hyper-V to Nutanix AHV. Since the K1000 is not officially supported on AHV, we have to migrate it to a stand alone VMware server instead of having it highly available on our AHV cluster. We are very much looking forward to having an AHV version of the K1000.

We have Nutanix with AHV and the K1000 is working fine since 6 month, only for the K2000 we had to wait for the new version 6.0.425. Now with the help from the Quest support also the K2000 is running fine within the AHV Nutanix environment. It was also just a little adjustment in the scripts so not even driver related. From my point of view it would be easy for Quest to at least grant a limited support for both K1000 and K2000 within AHV.
K2000 is not working at all on Nutanix AHV
K1000, even if not officially supported, at least seems working fine
ditto for K2000
