    NFS datastores with NetApp

    tomaddox Hot Shot

      Hi, everyone,


      We've traditionally used Fibre Channel datastores, but we're trying to move towards using NFS-based datastores hosted by a NetApp filer. What I would ideally like to do is have a separate set of network interfaces dedicated to NFS access. What I'm running into, however, is that I can't figure out how to designate a particular VMKernel interface for NFS storage traffic. What is the best way to tell ESX/ESXi 4.1 to only use a particular interface/vSwitch/dvSwitch/portgroup/whatever for NFS storage?
