Is there a way to change the percentages that vSphere uses to determine the status of datastores? I use a SAN that does thin provisioning, so I don't use VMware's thin provisioning. So I have a Volume (Lun) with 1000GB of space, and I create a flat virtual disk on it of 950GB. Since it's flat on the VMware side, I know that it will never grow beyond 950GB. VMware flags this with the red Alert! symbol anytime you see this datastore, because there is only 5% free space on the volume. What I want to do is change the alert level to something like 2% so I don't get these flagged.
Is this possible?
