We are trying to run a VM on an NFS datastore presented by Ontap Select 2 nodes cluster. Everything is working except that the VM has access to the disks every minutes for 30 seconds. The ethernet ports on the ontap select appliance are shown has half duplex even if it's configured for full duplex. ESX host VMnic are Fullduplex.
Anyone has idea on how to fix this issues?

Sounds like this may be cosmetic and there are BUGs relating to this, but they are supposed to have been fixed. (See below) . Have you tested the throughput to see if it is actually running at half? Which type of VMnics are you using? E1000 or VMXNET3.
