New Eagerly Zeroed Disk Shows Up As A Lazily Zeroed Disk

Jump to solution

I created a new hard disk in ESXi 6.7.0 Update 3 (Build 14320388) with the following settings.

When I opened the settings on another virtual machine to add this new hard disk as a shared disk, I was shown that the disk type is lazily zeroed and not eagerly zeroed as it was created.

Is this a known issue? Any work arounds?

eager zeroed have ALL LINES with VMFS -- LVID

lazy zeroed have at least one line with VMFS Z- LVID

The only way I know to check wether a vmdk is eagerzeroed or lazyzeroed is looking at the result of

vmkfstools -p 0 name-flat.vmdk > mapping.txt

eager zeroed have ALL LINES with VMFS -- LVID

lazy zeroed have at least one line with VMFS Z- LVID

during regular use lazy zeroed vmdks can change into eager zeroed vmdks - just by filling up.

no regular use can turn a eager zeroed into a lazy zeroed

I have the same problem.  A newly created eager zeroed hard disk (vmdk) file is seen as lazily zeroed when added to a virtual machine, and hence can not be shared.

command to create the harddisk (in ssh shell) :  vmkfstools -c 48G -d eagerzeroedthick diskname.vmdk

Is the new disk really eager zeroed ?
If yes -
vmkfstools -p 0 name-flat.vmdk
will have no entry with Z.
If not - recreate the disk with vmkfstools, dd or if necessary via the webinterface.

Most probable explanation : the webinterface has one of its weaker moments ...
Assign the vmdk to another VM that does not need sharing ... -  after a successful start the vmdk will be reevaluated and  if it is correctly detected this time it should also work in the other VM.

Please see the file disk-entries.txt in attachment.  It has the output of command

vkmfstools -p 0 filename-flat.vmdk

, and does not contain a single Z.  The attachment vm.jpg shows that the disk is seen as lazily zeroed when tried to add to a virtual machine.  I have also tried to create the disk by adding a new, non existent disk from within a first virtual machine.  This works.  I then start the virtual machine, format the disk and close down the vm.  However, when I try to add the existing disk to a second virtual machine, again the disk is shown as lazily zeroed in that GUI and hence not able to be shared.

The textfile arrived truncated - the part that I could inspect showed only eager zeroed fragments.
Is there a problem with your datastore ?
The rate of fragmentation for a newly created vmdk is quite scary !
Can you rebuild the datastore ?

Thanks for the response so far.

The file disk-entries.txt is uploaded again in a zip file, hope this can be viewed or downloaded completely.  I have also added a picture of the vmware configuration.  Regarding the fragmentation of the datastore, the cause may be that there are already some smaller files around.  This datastore is shared with other users.  Your suggestion to rebuild it, is this possible while files are present, preserving the content?  Could the fragmentation be the reason for the disk being seen as lazily zeroed?  I have tried with a disk size of 8GB and it has the same issue.

Well, I found a 'workaround' myself.  I start by adding a non-existent harddisk to both virtual machines.  Then I edit the .vmx files of both machines, replacing the path to the new harddisks by the (already created) disk I like to become shared.  I also add disk.locking = "false".  The shared disk is now seen by both machines (one windows and one ubuntu) and when I format the disk as NTFS on the ubuntu system, the disk seems to be 'usable' from both machines.  However, I had hoped that updates on the disk would be seen by both sides, but I learn now that NTFS  is not suitable for this kind of sharing.  As stated in this link : https://communities.vmware.com/t5/vSphere-Storage-Discussions/Configure-shared-disks-on-2-VMs-hosted....

Furthermore, the parameters I have chosen for the shared disk are based on this post : https://theitbros.com/share-disk-between-vms-on-vmware-esxi/
