I'm rebuilding one of my NFS storage units for a VMWare vSphere setup. As a result, the NFS exports' (datastore) paths defined on the ESX hosts are going to change from: /vol1/xxx to /volumes/vol1/xxx. I also may move some from VMDK files from /vol1/xxx to /volumes/vol2/xxx. Is there a quick way via the ESX command line or otherwise to redefine the mount points or paths of existing datastores?


The key here was to remove the datastores and recreate them. There were no shortcuts. This was at a time where I was using ESX (versus ESXi), so I used the service console to remap the mounts.
