Why I am getting this error while adding NAS storage on vSphere client?

I am currently using the VMware vSphere client in order to add a NAS storage unit. It is a Synology RS814 server and when I go to "Add Storage" and add in the proper IP and folder, it processes and then fails with the following error.(See attachment). I am currently stuck and cannot figure out how to move forward, any help would be greatly appreciated.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

A couple of things....

1. Have you added a VMKernel Portgroup on the same network as your NAS?

2. Have you enabled NFS on your NAS?

3. Have you added the Management IP Address as part of access control to your NAS?

4. Did you setup Exports/Shares on your NAS?
