Thanks Martin, I think I'm beginning to understand, I
think my error is because the
configuration I'm setting in the profile "VMWare ESX - Local Storage" I
did consideringthat the storage is local to the ESX but actually
refers to is for local ManagementNode ifI am correct then I
create a local
resource in my managementnode and share via NFSwith ESXi and the path
that I set in the profile is for the ManagementNode.
