How to add Windows CIFS Share as Datastore
Posted on 2013-06-12
If I try to add a CIFS share to VMWare as a Datastore I get an error that the host rejected the connection, but the CIFS Share has been configured for Full Access to "Everyone".
The Share is located on an external HDD connected to Windows 2008 R2 server with a folder shared out.
If I choose Add New Datastore > Network File System
Server: I have tried both IP and hostname
Folder: Not sure what to put here?
The path to the fileshare from Windows is \\server01\share
How would I translate that to the above?
