move an ISO from a local datastore to a shared NFS


I have this problem. I want to move an ISO file from a local datastore to a windows server PC that acts as NFS server among my 3 physical host that compose my test farm.

Each time I try I receive this error: cannot complete file creation operation

anyone can help me, please?

  1. Windows NFS is somewhat crappy, but you probably have no other options. I would recommend you try to download the required ISO file to a Windows Server using just the browser and ESXi management console and place it no NFS share from within Windows manually. After doing this, you can check if your ESXi hosts can see this ISO and to mount it. That might work as a temporary workaround.
