Rick Crisci demonstrates how to create an NFS data store on an vSphere 6 ESXi host.
- [Narrator] In this video I'll demonstrate…how to create an NFS datastore.…And we'll start here at the Home screen…of the vSphere Web Client by clicking on Storage.…Once we are in Storage,…I'm going to right-click on my Training data center,…and under Storage, choose New Datastore.…The Type of datastore will be an NFS datastore.…We'll choose NFS version three,…and now we'll gave the datastore a name.…
I'm going to call it NFS Demo.…We'll put in the address of the folder,…and then we'll also put in the address…of the NFS server as well:…nfs.vclass.local.…We also have the option to mount this NFS as read-only.…In this case I'm going to leave it as read-write,…and hit Next.…We'll choose which ESXi hosts…we want to make this datastore accessible to,…hit Next, and now the operation is ready to complete,…so let's hit Finish.…
We should see our new datastore up here momentarily.…Now, one of the things you want to keep in mind,…within NFS datastore, is they get created really quickly.…And the reason they are created so quickly…
