Details

Vembu creates a temporary NFS datastore to perform Quick Boot VM in the target ESXi host. The “Error: Unable to create NFS Datastore” will come, if the Vembu BDR Backup server or Vembu Offsite DR Server was not able to create an NFS datastore in the target ESXi host to perform Quick Boot VM.

Causes

The most common reasons for this error are, if

1) The Vembu Virtual Drive is not available on your Vembu BDR Backup Server or Offsite DR Server machine.

2) The previously attached temporary datastore was not properly unmounted from your ESXi.

3) Another datastore with the same names already exist in the same namespace.

Solution

CAUSE 1: If the Vembu Virtual Drive is not available on your Vembu BDR Backup Server or Offsite DR Server machine, make sure

The VembuBDR service is running under an administrator account.

The VembuBDR folder on the installation location has enough permissions.

You can find the VembuBDR folder at < installation location >\Vembu\VembuBDR

For Example, C:\Program Files\Vembu\VembuBDR

CAUSE 2 & 3: Previously attached temporary datastore or another datastore with the same names already exist.

Delete the temporary datastore created by Vembu on the ESXi host where you are trying to perform the Quick Boot VM.

You can find the datastore in the following format

VembuBDR_< BDR Server ID >

For example - If BDR Server ID is BDRServer391, then the name of the created datastore is VembuBDR_BDRServer391

Note: You need to delete the Quick Boot VM before deleting the datastore from the ESXi.
