NFS Storage Configuration for vSphere using Windows 2008

Windows 2008 introduced the ability to use NFS shares, enabling the server to be used as a storage target.
This Xtravirt white paper is a step by step guide of the process to setup and host NFS shares on a Windows 2008 server and connection to an ESXi 4 host. This can be used with a VI in a Boxsolution.The scenario described assumes that this is being setup on a single server which includes Domain Controller functions. It is designed for personal testing only and not an advocation as a production solution.
Key Concepts:
·         Install and configuration of Service for Network File System
·         Install and configuration of Identity Management for UNIX
·         Adding NFS storage to an ESX host
