NFS nic selection

Veeam Logoby Yanish » Tue Mar 29, 2016 5:35 am


I have a VMware environment with multiple isolated networks.
Our ESXi hosts are also isolated from the production network.

When performing a restore of Linux files a new NFS data store is created on our Repository/proxy.
The ESXi hosts can not access this datastore.
We added an additional nic interface to the repository/proxy and connected it to a network that is accessible to the ESXi hosts.
However the hosts still attempt to access the NFS share over the original network, is there any way to direct the to the correct interface?

Thanks in advance

Try mounting it manually instead of allowing it to be mounted automatically, so that you can choose the IP address:
