Samba4 with ESXi datastore

I was wondering if any of you built this setup. I want to load samba4 onto a
VM hosted in ESXi and I want to give it a datastore from another drive for
the shares. Would this allow for the ACLs to be stored properly, so it works
seamlessly? ESXi tends to format the disks with VMFS, then present the drive
as a virtual disk that would be mounted in the samba machine.

Any advice?
