I have 2 NFS Datastore that is mapped to all of my ESXi host in the vCenter Cluster.
However, when ever I create a Datastore DRS, the NFS datastores does not show up.
What am I missing?

Which version are you using on vCenter?
Are those NFS Datastores 4.1 version?
You need to create two datastore clusters for a seperate NFS and VMFS.
Does Storage DRS fully supports VMFS and NFS storage?
Yes, Storage DRS fully supports VMFS and NFS datastore. However, it does not allow adding NFS datastore and VMFS datastore into same datastore cluster.
Refer to the KB: VMware Knowledge Base
Thanks for the information, anyway it was written in the title of this thread...
You are creating a Datastore Cluster, never heard about a DatastoreDRS
When selecting the Datastore did you try to select the option of "Show datastores connected to all hosts" in the upper menu?
I saw your images that seems to be connected to both hosts but, if the tab of "Show datastores connected to all hosts" it doesn't appear, then there is not really connected to all hosts (maybe some missing configuration is needed).
NFS 4.1 does not seem to be supported to DatastoreCluster or Datastore DRS at the time of trying this.
I created an 2 NFS3 datastore and was able to create DatastoreCluster from those 2 datastore.
This thread is resolved by Creating NFS 3.0 Datastore to participate to the Datastore Cluster.
