    Defective space-used display?

      I'm seeing this odd calculations/display for space consumed on an NFS4 datastore:

      As the screenshots show, the two drives attached to the VM are 1TB and 252GB, and via thin provisioning on the NFS4 datastore, are consuming ~370GB and ~25GB, respectively.

       

      The used space display, however, is basically ignoring the VMDK consumption; VM memory is locked/reserved, so there's no swap file to consider either.

       

      This is also consistent across web clients; H5 vCenter, Flex vCenter and H5 Host all report the same ~5GB consumed.

       

      Anyone else seeing something like this? Is there a way to reset the calculations so that the host & vCenter properly recognize the consumed space?
