    cannot svMotion disk to thin if using paravirtual adapter

    asdfas3e5rqwer Novice



      I am trying to get rid of some thick disks in our environment, and I am consistently seeing that if a thick disk is handled by the paravirtual adapter, I cannot svMotion it to thin. The svMotion goes thru successfully, but it's still thick. Is this expected behavior or some sort of bug? Taking the VMs down and using vmkfstools isn't really an option.


      We're on vCenter 6.5u2c and the hosts are either 6.5u1 or 6.5u2. Tools are generally current and virtualHw versions are 10 and higher.
