Use the New datastore wizard to mount a Network File System (NFS) datastore in the VMware Host Client.


Because NFS requires network connectivity to access data on remote servers, before configuring NFS, you must first configure VMkernel networking.


  1. Click Storage in the VMware Host Client inventory and click Datastores.
  2. Click New datastore.
    The New datastore wizard opens.
  3. Click Mount NFS datastore and click Next.
