Use DNS-320 NAS as a new Storage at vcenter 4.1

We have a DLINK DNS-320 NAS storage device and we are trying to use it as an additional datastore to one of ours hosts but we get the following error message:

Call "HostDatastoreSystem.CreateNasDatastore" for object "datastoreSystem-1006" on vCenter Server "vCenterv4" failed.
Operation failed, diagnostics report: Unable to complete Sysinfo operation.  Please see the VMkernel log file for more details.


Can anyone help as with this issue?

do you have a VMKernel Portgroup for NFS?

can you use ping and vmkping to ping the NAS?

We have finally resolved that issue!

We have had two problems with our configuration.

1.The real path from our host to the nfs shared folder.
If you enter the path to be /Volume_1/foldername it wouldn`t work. You have to set the real path to be something like /mnt/HD/HD_a2/foldername. You can find your real nfs name path by clicking on nfs icon after creating the sharefolder.

2.Host of sharedfolder
During creating an nfs sharedfolder you have to select your host. As host must be set the IP of your ESXi.

*Also you have to enable Root Squash and Write for your NFS shared folder.

Thanks for the support
