svmotion, is it possible to migrate with 'eager zeroed thick' provisioning option like we can do via web vSphere 6.0.0 ?

Hello,

not found something about thick or this in this doc :


vSphere Documentation Center

svmotion --url= https://myvc.mycorp.com/sdk 

  --username=me 

  --password=secret 

  --datacenter=DC1 

  --vm='[old_datastore] myvm/myvm.vmx: new_datastore'

How to tell I need  'eager zeroed thick' ? I have 'lazy thick'

I prefer to not use 'vmkfstools' if possible, it's very long to extend a disk with this.

Regards

Thanks.

Is there the same with the vmware-vcli Linux with svmotion or anything else ? (not from the ESX itself, but a remote server)

You can use these commands with powercli, not sure if commands are same on vCLI as I dont use it.
