We are running 12 ESXI server and facing this issue in only one esxi host.

Can you please clarify this? Are you using different client versions to access the ESXi hosts directly (which ones)?

How we can setup automatically default provisioned to thin?

AFAIK this is hard coded within the vSphere Client and cannot be modified.

In addition, there is a recommendation not to create thin disks on the LUN, which were originally created on storage with support for Thin Provisioning technology. Maybe this is the reason for the tight fixation.
