First, I can't speak english well.sorry.
I have 2 questions relating to VAAI.vSphere 5.5/ONTAP 8.3/VAAI enable environment.
1.When I clone virtual machine that have two different ontap cluster volume, is VAAI's copy offload applied to cloned VM?
Please see attached picture.
2.If cloned virtual machine with VAAI offload was moved by a VMotion, this virtual machine size will increase?
I think VAAI's dedupelicaiton will be disabled. So it's size will increase.
Thank you for the material.
No.2, There is a possibility that vmdk file size will increase size, ifNetApp's deduplication technology is enabled.because Storage vMotion isn't used NAS VAAI Offload.
