I have esxis in a cluster and trying mount NFS and iscsi. My case both iscsi and NFS are in same subnet,
I created vmkernel port as on the picture and tried to mount the NFS datastore , some reason the NFS was not able to mount, that is, access denied, i checked the exfortfs file and everything was ok( the nfs ip has had root access).
i created separate vswitch for NFS and iscsi, tried again and it did not work either.
I removed iscsi vswitch and tried with NFS only, this time it was mounted.
Then i created iscsi vswitch and tried to mount another NFS data store and I was able to mount. this case, the iscsi switch was below the NFS switch.
What I can think of that the Esxi was using the first available vmkernel port to connect the datastore and did not try with other vmkernel port since both are on same subnet.
Can that be true?
or my esxi will break?
