Interesting little issue I ran into when trying to create a new datastore in my ESXi server. I had to use NFS v2/v3 even though the ESXi documention states v4 is supported. Here are my specs:
– QNAP TS-219P II 4.3.3.0404
– VMWare ESXi v6.0.0 Build 5050593
To configure the NFS share in the NAS. Control Panel > Win/MAC/NFS > NFS Service
To ensure your share has NFS partitions click on the link that says “Click here to set the NFS access…” Choose your shared folder and Edit Shared Folder Permissions. And click
In ESXi, click on the host server. Configuration > Storage > Add Storage…
1. Network File System
2. Server IP, Folder, Datastore Name
When done, you should see your NAS as a data store.
