    Default NFS support with VMware vSphere

    I've read the 7.0 what's new article on the web site and it says about the nfs support with vSphere. I couldn't understand what does it says more than the usual nfs support on vSphere. Anyone having any information on that, could you please enlighten us?

    From what's new article;

    NFS Support with VMware vSphere

    When Zimbra is deployed as a virtual appliance or with a guest operating system running on VMware vSphere 4.x, all Zimbra server and storage components (i.e. LDAP, indexes, primary and secondary datastore) are supported on NFS datastores.

    The NFS datastore must be presented to the ESX host and VMDK disk devices allocated to the Zimbra Virtual Machines. (Mounting the NFS datastore directly to the guest operating system or using a Raw Device Mapping (RDM) is not supported).


    Thanks

    There isn't any more to add, the item you've quoted is self-explanatory.

    I'm trying to understand what kind of advantage has been added since such a note exist. We're already using nfs with vsphere and Zimbra v5 on top of that. If it is specially pointed out in the article there must be an explanation.

    May be it was not supported officialy before and now it is supported or something like that.

    Thanks

    There is no explanation other than the statement about NFS has been added to the documentation, it clarifies the current use of an NFS share. It's nothing that hasn't been said before, there's no hidden meaning or advantage just a clarification.
