NFS shares for ESXi Servers

There are a lot of good tutorials out there to guide you through setting up a NFS share host VMs for VMWare's free ESXi server platform. Unfortunately, a lot of them leave out some details that can make setting your server up a bit challenging.

  • Make sure that the NFS permissions for your share are set to allow anonymous access
  • Make sure that the UID and SID for the "root" account are set to '0' in SFU
  • Add the "Anonymous User" account is a member of the same OU as the "root" account.
  • Set the permissions on your NFS share to "read+write" and check the "allow root access" box
