I am having issues connecting to a NFS share that I created on Free nas.I will go through the steps I have done and hopefully somebody will be able to help me out and spot what I'm doing wrong.I am a newbie to virtualization and storage and I am using a homelab setup to learn it, I have a poweredge server running esxi off a usb, and I am using a laptop as a freenas server, both are connected to a switch.
I import the the volume using ZFS volume manager, set the permissions to read /write,create the NFS share-
I set the share permissions using mapall (instead of maproot) user/group to root/wheel as I read that this is the same as using the no_root_squash options.
I created a system dataset pool to the same volume.
I have created a VMkernel port .
I can create a windows share and connect to it from an esxi host, I can also ping from the esxi host.
I have allowed NFS in the outgoing connections of the firewall and have turned on the NFS service.
The error message is in the screenshots below.
Any help would be much appreciated.
Try setting the NFS export to no_root_squash. I have a feeling its the one causing it. You may check this KB article: VMware KB: Unable to mount NFS datastore
I mostly configure Freenas from its GUI. Here is my config which is working fine:
