How to Mount Windows Folder into vSphere as NFS Share (vSphere Tutorial 4)


While playing with virtual machines/virtual environments, ISO images of different operating systems and applications are required.  Which can directly be attach from host machines to VMs with the help of VMWare Workstation and vSphere Client.  However, it is good idea to have ISO images into ESXi host.  So today I am going to mount a Windows based folder (carrying ISO images) into ESXi host.  I am using Windows 2008 Server here for this scenario.  If you are interested to use Windows 7, then this link will describe best to you:


Windows 2008 Server (with File Services role installed)

Sharing work is completed.  Now access the vSphere using vSphere Client.
