    Windows 2008 R2 NFS Datastore keeps vanishing

    ThriveTP Novice

      Got a new vSphere 6 Essentials installed. I have an NFS share published on a Windows Server 2008 R2 box.  I can add the NFS share to the esxi host using the vSphere client (not using vSphere server at this time).  When I try to browse it the nfs datastore, no files appear. All I see is the top level folder structure, nothing within each folder--files or directories.

       

      If I do a refresh, the datastore vanishes. Restarting the host does not make it reappear. If I try to add the share again, I get the message the one of that name already exists (which makes sense since I never removed the datastore). If I change the windows share name, i can mount once more, but after a refresh it goes away again.

       

      Any help appreciated.
