Subject RE: VMware and NFS
Date Fri, 21 Feb 2014 16:12:53 GMT
Actually I am pretty sure that is what it does....So I changed like 4-5 things "my mistake",
then I noticed a datastore with a "GUID" looking name popped up on my hosts. This datastore
was mapped to my NFS share. Once that showed up CS started creating the system VMs. So I am
trying to back track and see what setting made it kick in...Stay tuned...
