VCenter 7 occupy more than 3TB

This post was originally published on this site


I have just migrated a VSAN cluster from 6.7U3 to 7.0U1.

Apart of big network issue with Mellanox ConnetctX-4 LX cards that I’m trying to solve upgrading driver/firmware (now the cards go to 2Gbit/s and VSAN is super slow), I have noticed that VCenter (that has some disks Thick even on VSAN), has 2 disks of 1.4TB of size (99% free but thick), VMDK7 and VMDK13…
