What is the best/easiest way to temporarily unmount (or pause) and remount a NFS data store in vcenter? (ie if you need to do maintenance on the SAN)
I generally have the ability To temporarily storage vmotion almost all VMs to hosts direct attach disks
however in terms of remounting the NFS DataStores after maintenance, i fell like one has to write down the exact datastore names (of course the nfs path and IP must be same ) of all NFS data stores ***So that when you remount them after maintenance the DS names are exact exactly as before.*** I usually also take a screenshot of the vCenter datastore page/column before unmounting.
**Is there no way to pause NFS datastores, or some other quicker way to Automatically remount them with the exact same DS names?**
