in order to list all the thin vdisks of your vmware infrastructure, a small powershell/powercli like this can be used:


$allvms = Get-VM | where-object {($_.powerstate -ne "PoweredOff")}

foreach ($vm in $allvms | Get-View){

  foreach($dev in $vm.Config.Hardware.Device) {

    if(($dev.GetType()).Name -eq "VirtualDisk") {

      if($dev.Backing.ThinProvisioned -eq $true) {

        $vm.Name + "`t" + $dev.Backing.FileName






(As usual, remember to use the Connect-VIServer cmdlet before!)



I would like to comment that this script is mainly taken from here.



Best regards,
