Lets Design, Implement and do Administration of ESX3

Virtualization with VMWare Infrastructure 3.0


Posted by Preetam on September 24, 2007

Before we do this, we need to understand why are we actually enabling disk shares. Since in ESX environment we have multiple VM’s accessing the same VMFS volume and in that in case, you need to prioritize any of the VM, it is recommend practice to enable disk shares for that VM.

How to enable disk shares to prioritize virtual machines

  1. Start a VI Client and connect to a Virtual Center Server.
  2. Select the virtual machine in the inventory panel and choose Edit Settings from the right‐button menu.
  3. Click the Resources tab, and click Disk.
  4. Right‐click the Shares column for the disk you want to modify, and select the required value from the drop‐down menu.
