  • 1.  All VMs Provision size equal 0 in a datastore

    Posted Mar 17, 2016 05:41 PM

    hi guys

    I would like to know if someone has seen this before and any idea how to fix it

    I see all Vms stored in a specific Datastore whose VMDKs show disk a size 0 MB if a VM has a disk in another datastore the VMDK says the correct size in this specific datastore all VMs are like that

    these are 2 different Storage

    1. Storage DS3500. Providing 4 Datasrores. OK

    2. V3700.Providing only one datasore. Not OK

    All VMs are working fine but I am not really happy about this behavior

    I am adding two screens, also disks are marked as Thick Provision Lazy Zeroed when I know all are in thin

    thanks a lot

    Are these disks greater than 2TB ? If yes then take a look on this KB : VMware KB: 2TB thick provisioned VMDK disk shows up as 0.00 bytes in the datastore browser
