I Have developed a VAAI NAS plugin & installed it from command line on ESXI host.
After installation of plugin , I can see Hardware Acceleration as supported when I checked it through command line using below command-
#esxcli storage nfs list
Volume Name Host Share Accessible Mounted Read-Only isPE Hardware Acceleration
———— ————- ———— ———- ——- ——— —– ———————
myshare myhost /mnt/myshare true true false false Supported
I created one NFS share & mounted it on ESX.
From Gui , when I am trying to create a disk on NFS datastore, I am getting only Thin provisioning option enabled. Thick provisioning option is grayed out.
When we ran command vmkfstool with thick provisioned option ,it runs successfully.
#vmkfstools -c 4m /myshare/test19.vmdk -d eagerzeroedthick
What needs to be done in the VAAI NAS plugin to enable thick provisioning option in GUI ?
