We have a new ESXi 4.1 server. We are using it to build a Windows 2008 R2 server VM that will be put on like ESXi 4.1 machines and sent out to client sites to be used as needed by the clients. The VM is as follows:
272GB data store
VM is thin provisioned
Provisioned with 270GB, uses 12GB when windows and updates installed
After the VM is build and windows is installed I am using Vcenter client and FastSCP to copy the VMDK files to secondary storage locations.
FastSCP is telling me that is has to move 270GB's of data
the amount of actual used space is 12GB.
I thought thin provisioning only took up how much space is used.
When you remove the VMDK from the storage, it does a block level copy which amounts to the entire disk being copied. We are running into this with our backup software as well using VCB and the VDDK backup
