Use Storage > VMware-Snapshots to add a VMWare snapshot that coordinates ZFS snapshots when using TrueNAS as a VMware datastore.
|Hostname||Enter the IP address or host name of the VMware host. When clustering, use the IP address or host name of the vCenter server for the cluster.|
|Username||Enter a user account name created on the VMware host. The account must have permission to snapshot virtual machines.|
|Password||Enter the password associated with the value in Username.|
|ZFS Filesystem||Select a file system to snapshot from the dropdown list. Values populate from the VMWare host response.|
|Datastore||Select an option from the dropdown list after entering the Hostname, Username, and Password, click FETCH DATASTORES to populate the menu. Select the datastore to synchronize. Selecting a datastore also select any previously mapped datasets.|
Use FETCH DATASTORES to have TrueNAS connect to the VMware host.
