I have upgraded my vcenter 5.5 essentials to 6 and Essentials plus ESX hosts to 6 to deploy new full featured VDP appliance. I have re-purposed old server with DAS storage by deploying CentOS and created NFS share. I attached NFS share to all three ESX hosts and deployed VDP appliance on that NFS share. When I was trying to create the storage on NFS share using web access to VDP, it fails with error "Confirm that memory hot-add is enabled. If it is disabled then shut down the VDP gracefully to enable this feature or increase the amount of RAM". I already have more than adequate RAM but I do not see the hot-add option in VM settings or host advance settings. There is not documentation on VDP about any issues with NFS share? Does VDP only with works with ISCSI shares?
Also, when I was deploying VDP I used the same NFS storage share where I am planning to provision by backup storage and I did not get option for thick provisioning. Does appliance needs to be deployed on production ISCSI datastore and only provision storage VMDK to NFS storage provisioned from CentOS server?
