Is it possible to create thin vmdk files on ISCSI Datastores or are they all going to have to be thick?
Additionally, if i am migrating vms using vmware converted, how can i migrate the stores to ISCSI lun without making them thick?
I figure your a fan of NFS, can you direct me to a best practice guide for netapp and esx using NFS
Lets say i have 500GB of space available on Volume
Is it better to create multiple exports for each VM utilizing thin provisioning or
create one export with the whole 500GB and put all vms on that
I'm not a NFS fan but we have hundreds ESX with NetApp NFS, work great. We do use iSCSI but inside VM using software iSCSI initiator.
How big your LUN should depend on you requirement, we dont make it too big to reduce backup window.
