The NFS storage has successfully mounted, from Datastores to browse and create new folder has no error. But only when creating a new VM machine it show an error as below.
Failed - Unable to load configuration file '/vmfs/volumes/***/New Virtual Machine/New Virtual Machine.vmx'.
Appreciate any advice, thanks!
On the Win Srv 2012, verify the permissions on the NFS Folder.
So, right-clicked the NFS folder, clicked Properties, selected the NFS Sharing tab, clicked the Manage NFS Sharing button, checked the Share this folder check box, clicked the Permissions button, then verify:
1) if all esxi hosts are listed, otherwise add it (if is a Lab, allow all)
2)all listed hosts, have read-write as type and Allow root access is checked
I see that quite regularly - most of the times it is no real error at all and just means that the webinterface is reaching its limits ...
Sorry for anthropomorphizing the webinterface - but sometimes that guy just needs a break and a restart ...
Thats about 6.5 mostly .... just have some patience ...
I have tested from win2012 to allow all client access, and Allowed root access. But still same.
The NFS is using 4.1.
I have also tested from another win2012 created another testing NFS share, but still the same.
I use an old NAS to create an NFS 3 test it worked without an issue.
Where should I check?
Did you ever get a resolution to this?
I am running into this issue today.
.I am on 7.0.2u2a and working against a Windows 2012R2 NFS datastore.
I am able to use vCenter to upload files to that datastore but if you try to create a new VM on it, it bails with
Unable to load configuration file '/vmfs/volumes/***New Virtual Machine/New Virtual Machine.vmx'.
