    Shrinking THIN Disk not working with SDELETE and SVMOTION

    kcucadmin Enthusiast

      Hi gang.


      Been banging my head on this one.


      I have a VM with a THIN provisioned disk, i wanted to reclaim about 30GB of unused space.  I followed all the guides.  I degraged, then ran sdelete -c c: inside the guest vm. then performed a live SVMOTION to another datastore using THIN as the option.  my vmdk file did not shrink....


      help me out here, what am i missing.


      do i need to perform a SDELETE -z  to WIPE before the -c?


      everything i'm reading says just need to do -c.
