    Unable to mount Windows 2008 NFS Datastore in VMware vSphere

    IcePolo Lurker

      Hi Guys,


      I have a W2k8 Ent. 64bit SP1 which I have configured as NFS storage for my vmware vsphere. If I try to add datastore on vcenter (ver 5.0.0) i'ts always giving me this error message:


      Call "HostDatastoreSystem.CreateNasDatastore" for object "datastoreSystem-12" on vCenter Server "vCenter.dtsigroup.com" failed.
      Operation failed, diagnostics report: Cannot open volume: /vmfs/volumes/1387b74c-4940eeac


      Here's what i've checked so far:


      • Verified that Windows 2008 firewall is already disabled
        • VMKernel Port exist
        • Verified that from the ESXi host, under Configuration -> Security Profile -> Firewall -> NFS Client is allowed
        • Screenshot for other config are attached for reference


        I'm not sure what else i'm missing here. Hope someone can help me to configure this thing as I've struggling for weeks now. Any help is highly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
