    Datastore Browser problems with NFS4.1

    crispyduck00 Novice

      Hi,

       

      With support and some patches from the FreeBSD NFS developer Rick M. I got ESXi 6.5u1 to work with a datastore on a FreeBSD NFS4.1 share.

       

      The only thing left, where it is actually not clear why this happen, is that it is not possible to delete folders on the NFS4.1 datastore with the embedded host client v1.24.0 datastore browser.

       

      When trying to delete a empty or not empty folder it fails with several times following vmkernel.log entrees:

      Deleting from shell is no problem and does also not create any warnings,... in the vmkernel.log.

       

      Thanks
