export file - vmware

nsitps1976

I am new to vmware over NFS – Pls could someone give me an example of what an entry in the export file should look like for an ESX cluster connecting to an NFS volume?

I have tried a few different options without success, ie:

/vol/vol1 –sec=sys,rw=ip_address_of_vmk,root= ip_address_of_vmk,anon=0

Hi,

What you have should basically work assuming you:

1. Can reach the filer on an IP basis

2. NFS is licensed and enabled

3. The qtree security is unix

See the exportfs manpage for checking exports.  See 'options nfs' for logging mountd requests.

Thanks for the help.

mountd trace helped point out that the request was coming from a different interface! Yes, school boy error

Multiple IP's (aliases) in the same subnet?

That is going to give unpredictable results more often than you know...

Yes, however it is only a test environment.

I am moving away from the same subnet based on your advice in other posts.
