Unofficial DPTPB Nutanix Dynamic Visio Shapes: NX-1120S-G7 & Minor updates

Nutanix has released a new NX platform, NX-1120S-G7 a while ago. I’ve been waiting for Nutanix to update their official Visio stencils, but Nutanix seems to have lost interest in maintaining their official Visio stencil set.

Unofficial DPTPB Nutanix Dynamic Visio Shapes: NX-3170-G7 & Minor updates

So it is time for me to update my Unofficial DPTPB Nutanix Dynamic Visio shape collection. Additionally there has been some changes in supported disk / NIC combinations for existing G7 generation NX appliances and I’ve modified the shapes to reflect these changes.
