Mount datastore on additional hosts


Mounting a datastore provides storage access to additional hosts. You can mount the datastore on the additional hosts after you add the hosts to your VMware environment.

What you will need

You must ensure that the subnet details of all the networks to which the ESXi hosted is connected is entered in the Kaminoprefs.xml.

See Enabling datastore mounting across different subnets section.


  1. From the vSphere Client Home page, click Hosts and Clusters.

  2. In the navigation pane, select the datacenter that contains the host.

  3. Repeat Step 2 for any additional hosts.

  4. Right-click the host, and then select NetApp ONTAP tools > Mount Datastores.

  5. Select the datastores that you want to mount, and then click OK.
