We are building a new VMware (vShere / ESX 4 cluster) Windows Server 2008 file server that will be sharing many TB of data located on a NAS via NFS.
What’s the best way to mount and share that data via the VM? It just seems odd to create one or more multi TB disks for the VM out on the NAS. I could see issues if I need to deal with that data in an emergency and need to get to data quickly or move things around.
Would it make more sense to do something like access the files on the NAS via DFS from the VM or something like that and just leave the files as files on the NAS box? Would that create a performance or other headaches?
So what is the best way to deal with lots of data from a VM via NFS?
A simple method to resolve a "keyboard not working" problem by modifying the Windows registry. This issue can often be encountered after using the VMware vCenter Converter Standalone Agent to perform a Physical-to-Virtual (P2V) conversion process.
