    Unable to create large thin provisioned disk.

      • Host: VMware ESXi, 6.5.0, 11925212

      vSphere web client will not allow me to create a new VM with a disk larger than the free space available, even if it is thin provisioned.

      It will, however, happily allow me to create as many disks as I want that are below the size free, even if the total is more than the free space available.

       

      How can I force creation of a single disk that is larger than the free space in the datastore?

      I am not concerned about over-provisioning since once this VM is loaded with software, it is going to be exported to another host.
