Re: space reclamation

It worked on a non-production LUN. I'm going to try one PROD LUN now to see what happens.

Re: space reclamation

Good to hear.  One thing to keep in mind though, once it's enabled you don't get the free space back right away.  If you need the space back right away you can kick-off a manual reclaim from the ESX host.  That process is documented here.

Re: space reclamation

Even for VMFS6, we stilll need to have space allocation enabled on the NetApp?
