Enabling esxi VAAI support for Synology NAS

To enable VMware VAAI on your NFS datastores, you need to install Synology NFS VAAI Plug-in on each ESXi host.

NFS VAAI Plug-in can be installed directly on an ESXi server from the command line, or through the VMware Update Manager (VUM).

VMware ESXi 5.5, 6.0, 6.5, 6.7 VIB Installation Instructions

VMware uses a file package called a VIB (VMware Installation Bundle) as the
mechanism for installing or upgrading software packages on an ESXi server.

The file may be installed directly on an ESXi server from the command line, or
through the VMware Update Manager (VUM).
