/vdisks vs /virtual_disks


Badge +9
What are the differences between /vdisks and /virtual_disks targets?
Shouldn't they be the same target?
There is no documentation in the API itself that really explains this.

virtual-disk - This is the file that is referred by the sas/ide controller in the vm's configuration file .vmx or .xml.

vdisk - this is the file where the data is stored.

In Nutanix on Esxi virtual-disk will point to the .vmdk file (disk descriptor file) in the nfs datastore and the vdisk will point to the -flat.vmdk file.

In AHV the virtual-disk will point to the same files as we don't have separate disk descriptor file like esxi.

In Nutanix on Esxi virtual-disk will point to the .vmdk file (disk descriptor file) in the nfs datastore and the vdisk will point to the -flat.vmdk file.

In AHV the virtual-disk will point to the same files as we don't have separate disk descriptor file like esxi.
