Hi, just created a new VM on a shared storage (IBM DS3400), the setting was NOT using thin provisioning and independent disk which does not affect by snap shot.
However, after the creation is completed, the used storage that the VM's summary page reporting is incorrect, I've got only a few Kbs. And then I tried to browse by datastore browser, the size of the .vmdk is.... to my surprise.... is 0Kb.... but the datastore details is reporting something seems to be reasonable.
Any hints? I'm using ESXi 4.0.0, 261974
Yes it's thick as the client reported and during the VM creation I choosed FT.
The xxx-1-flat.vmdk is correct under the CLI, except in the vsphere client.
