When I was trying to create NFS datastore on ESXI host, I got he message of "an error occurred during host configuration".
I tried it several times, but the error message was same.
I am not sure that is it my fault or any malfunction of the game.
I need help regarding the issue.
An error occurred during host configuration.
Call “HostDatastoreSystem.CreateNasDatastore” for object “ha-datastoresystem”
Need for Speed : An error occurred during host configuration
This error message is not really helpful and can be caused by a variety of issues. Things to try:
Ensure you can ping / resolve the FQDN of the NAS device from vCenter
Ensure DNS is configured properly on your NAS device
Ensure you are entering the right folder location when adding NAS datastore
Ensure the permissions on the NAS device is set properly for your ESX(i) servers(s) – also note root access is required
I have personally seen that all of these issues have caused the error message to appear. In my particular case, permissions were causing the problem.
