NFS permissions

To start, I am new to Drobo. I have a Drobo 5N running nfs 1.2.8. I set up the nfs share as a datastore for a VMware 5.5 ESXi host. I successfully created the datastore but I cannot create any VMs on the datastore. I get the error “error caused by file /vmfs/volumes/…” My understanding is that this is due to improper permissions.

My exports file shows the following:

I don’t have a ton of experience setting nfs permissions. Any help appreciated.

I’m in the same boat. If I find the answer I’ll post it to your reply.

What are the actual filesystem permissions for /mnt/DroboFS/Shares/Public ? Your NFS configuration squashes all accesses to the user “nobody” and group “nobody”.

I’m not sure that the default EXT4 permissions for Public allow file creation from the “nobody” account.

Thanks for the reply I don’t want to hijack. i’ll check forums to see how to I check the permissions on the Drobo 5N and ESXi for NFS.

How does one check permissions on drobo share?
