Upto ESXi 6.0, I was using legacy C# based Desktop client to deploy my VMs.
For the deployment, I was using Thick provisioned Eager Zero disk type.
Now I am using ESXi 6.5u1 and embedded HTML client to manage this host.
During the deployment steps VMware ask to choose disk as thin or thick and I am using thick option to deploy my VM.
When i am using thick disk type, VM is deployed but disk become thick provisioned lazy zero.
Can anyone help me to know how to deploy VM with thick provisioned eager zero disk type.
Thanks in advance !!!!

Only Thin and Thick options are available for Disk provisioning:
After all the configuration following dialog box appear for verify all the configuration:

Oh, you mean "appliance deployment from OVF".
Well, probably you can't use "thick eager zeroed" from the deployment GUI, but you can convert the resulting VMDK file in different ways, for example from the command-line:
vmkfstools --eagerzero /vmfs/volumes/DatastoreName/VMName/VMName.vmdk
