I created a Windows Server 2016 and created an NFS 3.0 share. I am using this NFS share for vcenter 6.5 to connect and use as the primary datastore.
My problem is vCenter says the NFS share is strictly set to accept only Thin Provisioning.
How do I change my NFS share to also accept "Thick Provisioning" of Disks ??
I now have a few TB of data on the NFS share so hopefully this can be changed without losing the current data.
