Hello, All.

All my VM's are created as THIN Provisioned.
However, when I [Edit Settings] on each and everyone, they all show the same thing.


Thick provisioned, lazily zeroed

Why would it change my THIN to THICK?

I read there is a way to change them from Thick to Thin and will look in on doing that.
But this is annoying knowing that I chose one thing and ESXi changed it to something else.
