  2. From the drop-down menu in the SVM field, select All SVMs.

  3. Select the volume, and then click More Actions > Provision Storage for VMware.

  4. In the Create NFS Datastore for VMware wizard, type or select information as required.

  5. Confirm the details, and then click Finish to complete the wizard.
