    vCenter Server Hard Disks Eager or Lazy Zeroed?

    TheVMinator Master

      Should the virtual hard disks for a production vCenter Server which has high performance needs in an enviornment of 100 physical servers and 3000 Virtual Machines be provisioned as Lazy or Eager Zeroed?  One virtual hard disk is for the OS and the other is where I install vCenter and all it's components.  If eager zeroed gives a recommended performance gain due to not having to zero during a write, should both disks be eager zeroed in this case?
