Need for Speed : An error occurred during host configuration

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -


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.
