mount an existing NFS datastores to a new host

Hello, I want to perform this without using the "new-datastore" command, I want to perform it as we do from the vSphere webclint, just by rightclicking the datastore and select "Mount ao another host", so I want to do it like this in PowerCLi. is it doable?

I'm afraid that is functionality that the Web Client offers.

Under the covers it fetches the NFS settings from the ESXi node, and then creates a new NFS datastore on the target ESXi node(s).

It's ultimately just a number of New-Datastore cmdlets executed on the selected ESXi node(s)

Okay. I tried to export NFS info to csv, but the value for "remotehost" is "system.string[]" instead of IP, how could I fix this please?

That means you have an array instead of a scalar in RemoteHost.

How did you do the export?
Can you share the script?
