[Gluster-devel] Can't use NFS with VMware ESXi

I have something similar to what you have done. But I used gluster 
3.2.6, and mount gluster volume as directory. Finally redistribute that 
mouthing point through NFS (native kernel NFS) to another team, who will 
connect their VMware Vsphere  to this mounting point and store all VM 
image in this directory. All work without any issue.
However, we tested with map NFS with mountproto=tcp option directly to 
gluster, and it works without any issue as well. But we need redundancy 
so that we run NFS server in cluster.

Another thing you may need to check if there any iptable rules block 
those traffic as I experience NFS can be mounted by can not be used if 
there iptables block some udp traffic.
I hope this may help you.
