migrating thin provisioned VM Template to VVol stays thick

i’m starting to migrate to VVols and i have one template that still reports as 500+ gigs even though its not that heavy.

​

am i missing something? i had servers migrate over that showed thick for quite a while then taper off, but i migrated this template off a while ago.

  1. Well depending on your vendor the capacity reporting can vary for a VM and its disks. But there could be a lot of dead space in it, so you might want to convert the template to a VM, power it on, make sure UNMAP is run and then convert it back to a template. This can help “clean” it out
