Could someone help me out here with the RCU please. I'm trying to do an RC of a vm template. Currently it's thickly provisioned on the NFS store. When I clone it and no matter what option I select of "leave in the same format" "thin provison" or "thick provision" the VSC does an initial copy of the image. This seems like a complete waste of time to me, why doesn't it just clone the original template? Is there a way to avoid doing this initial copy or at least speed it up? Copying the 40gb takes quite a while.
this is my first time with the RCU so it may well be that I don't understand the concepts of it. At one point, it did do a very quick clone of the template but now it seems to do an entire file copy. Is this expected?
