  • unable to create partition on NFS datastore

    I have a ESX3.5 host with a NFS server connected via VM Kernel. When I create a new virtual machine and run a iso image it constantly comes back saying that it cant create a partition on the datastore located NFS server. All the obvious permissions are fine. Has anybody seen this before?. Both servers are new builds.


    any help appreciated

    did you use the no_root_squash options on the export?
