We are adding a new host to the existing vmware cluster. It is easy to add it but how to mount all datastores to the new host.
It is Net App FAS 2040.
I can see all 10 datastores in NetApp System manager but need some advise how to mount all datastores to the new host.
Solved! SEE THE SOLUTION

1) I need some step by step instructions ot mount the new host to all existing data-stores
2) Why I do see some disks aggregated and some disks are not aggregated?
3) Can I add a spare disk (Showing "spare") to the aggregated ones? What is the limitation of aggregation?
cannot find some good documents in NetApp.

Open OnCommandSystem Manager go to storage-->exports
Select your exports edit the security tab add the ip address of your vmkernel nfs whit root access and read/write and save.
Open your viclient and connect to your vcenter select cluster and select your host go to configuration tab select storage-->add storage

You are great!! But I will ask another dumb question:
We have two esxi hosts in the cluster but I don't see they are full mounted to all datastores.
Other hosts are mounted to 7 NFS (datastores) but only these two are not.
I don't know they do this intentionally or neglectfully...

All the host they are in the same cluster need to see all the datastore.
I recommend you to install virtual storage console (VSC) that will allow you to easily mount your NFS datastore you find the software in the download section of the your support account.
