    Paravirtual SCSI controller oddities

    HendersonD Hot Shot

      Our View environment consists of 200 linked clones made from a master Win7, 32bit machine. The master has a single 24GB disk that was using the LSI Logic SAS SCSI controller. To improve performance and cut down on CPU load we decided to change over to the Paravirtualized SCSI controller. After making this change on the master, we recomposed the pool. Once the recompose was finished I expected to look at the settings of any of my linked clone machines and see them also using the Paravirualized SCSI controller. Much to my surprise I got mix and match as shown below. When linked clones are made it also creates a small 20MB disk along with the 24GB disk. I got two Paravirtual controllers, on Paravirtual and one LSI, and two LSI controllers. Any idea why?
