Welcome to the Community,

in order to help, it's necessary to know your setup, so please provide some details.

Am I right in assuming that it is block storage?

  • which storage system (model, firmware) is in use?
  • how are the LUNs configured (thin, thick)?
  • which ESXi version/build do you use?
  • which VMFS version do you use for the datastores (VMFS5, or VMFS6)?

this is more a Dell/EMC question isn't it? You should probably ask it here: https://community.emc.com
