It is tempting easy to create new SVM in Clustered Data Ontap, hence I am quickly trying to test datastores for vSphere 5.5 under cDOT 8.3RC1.
This is what I got so far:
a SVM "bgs_nfs_vmw2" created by the wizard of the built-in System Manager
a volume "bgs_nfs_vmw2_ds1_snp3" created by the wizard "Provision Storage for VMware"
an export-policy, created by the wizard
and a LIF
The NFS is enabled and running:
bgsstg2::vserver nfs> show
General Access: true
Default Windows User: -
Default Windows Group: -
bgsstg2::> vserver nfs status
The NFS server is running on Vserver "bgs_nfs_vmw2".
The network is there:
The export-policy matches to the ESXi-host 10.0.53.23 and is attached to the volume "bgs_nfs_vmw2_ds1_snp3":
bgsstg2::vserver export-policy> rule show
bgs_nfs_vmw2 bgs_nfs_vmw2_ds1_snp3_policy 1 nfs 10.0.53.23 sys
Solved! SEE THE SOLUTION

after hours of reading and testing I finally set up another NFS-SVM by commandline - with this SVM it worked, so I compared the two...
it looks like the System Manager wizard took the entries for the DNS servers and created with those also a NIS record - deleting the NIS entry - and now my clients can connect to the SVM "bgs_nfs_vmw2"
