I'm trying to squeeze out a bit more life from some IBM x3650 and x3550 M2's. These systems are quite old, but still pack enough power to run meaningful workloads when the upgrades are maxed out. There is one last upgrade you can do that will allow you to unlock the ability to run VMware ESXi 6.7 on a IBM x3650/x3550 M2.
Your XigmaNAS, NAS4Free, FreeNAS, of in general your NFS server is repeatedly showing a mount access error denied in the logs. The NFS client that's trying to mount an NFS export that does not exist or once existed. The NFS client is a VMWare ESXi host.
A VMWare ESXi host is trying to mount an NFS export that you deleted or moved. You log is spammed with endless mount request denied entries.
This is a slight departure from FreeBSD land, but there is no reason why this can't be applied to FreeBSD as well with some slight modifications. Here we will use Saltstack to automatically partition, format, and mount a volume in Ubuntu Linux 20.04.
