    VSAN VMs thin provisioning query

    ManivelR Enthusiast

      Hi Guys,

       

      I have some doubt on VSAN VMs thin provisioning query.

       

      Im using VSAN 6.7.0 update 1 and lot of Windows/linux VMs,NSX manager/vROPS available.

       

      I created a new storage policy and not added any rule "Object space reservation to zero" in to my storage policy.Which means,all the newly created VMs will be thin provisioning by default.

       

      I guess,without adding this rule,"Object space reservation to zero" in storage policy, all the VMs should be created as a thin provisioning. Am i right?

       

      All the VMs(Windows/Linux VMs) are listed as "thin provisioning",however NSX/vrops(created from OVA) are listed as "thick provisioning lazy zeroed"( i checked from both HTML & flash web client).Is this known bug? Please suggest.
