Mounting another ESX Host's vmfs via NFS

I currently have two ESX servers 3.0.2. Both have local disks (860GB on RAID10) I was wondering if it is possible to mount the other servers datastore via NFS

If not what would be the best way to move guests between the two servers?

If the last post on this thread is correct then you won't be able to run a NFS in the console, and from a performance perspective it probably wouldn't be the best either - .

As alternitives, you could run a VM that run either as an NFS server or iSCSI target, or if you want something more elaborate, Lefthand Networks has a virtual appliance that does what you want and it includes replication, clustering, snapshots, etc -
