- Virtual Storage Console (VSC) 9.7.1P1
- ONTAP Tools for VMware (OTV) 9.8
When provsioning a traditional NFS 3/NFS4.1 datastore using Virtual Storage Console (VSC), the provisioning operation fails with the following error:
Cannot create or mount NFS datastore because either none of your ESX host's VMkernel interfaces share a subnet with the controller or it would create anindirect data path. Try adding the network of the VMkernel interface(s) you'd like to use to mount to the default.allow.nfs.mount.networks property in the kaminoprefs.xml preferences file.
This error is seen:
- when provisioning to a single ESXi Host
- even with the vmkernel and SVM NFS LIF are in same subnet.
