In this video, learn how to create an NFS datastore using the vSphere 6.7 client, configure sharing settings on an NFS server, and mount an NFS share on a group of ESXi hosts.
- [Rick] In this video I'll demonstrate … how to create an NFS Datastore. … And you can see here, … I'm logged into the vSphere client. … I'm using the HTML5 version of the Vsphere client … in Vsphere 6.7. … And so, I want to create a new Datastore. … So, I'm going to start by just going to storage here. … And you can see the Datastores that currently exist … in my training virtual data center. … And if I right-click the training virtual data center … and go to storage, I have an option to add a new Datastore. … So, let's do that. … And this is going to be an NFS Datastore. … Now, I have two options here. … I can choose either an NFS version 3 Datastore … or an NFS version 4.1 Datastore. … And we just saw a video breaking down the differences … between those two NFS versions. … So, in this demo, I'm going to create an NFS 3 Datastore. … I'm just going to call the Datastore NFS-Demo. … And on my actual NFS device, … I've created a folder called Share. … So, that's my NFS export … that I'm going to be creating this Datastore on. …
