Hey guys,

I made a quite new discovery that is totally new to me and I try to understand where this is comming from, maybe someone can help :)

Scenario: There are 2 ESX clusters, connected via Metro. The DataStore on the source site is ~2TB, the datastore on the destination is about 1TB and I have no clue why :)

Both DataStores only use compression, there are no other snapshots on the source side and this is for a couple of days now, so no curator run should be involved.

 

Ideas anyone?

 

Cheers, Flo

We don’t have any other Data Protection in these clusters than metro. I also had a look into the local snapshots on the PD, there is one expired snapshots of 9,x GiB..

I don’t get it :-D

Got it. This can be due to dataprotection snapshots or recovery points (leap) in Prism Central. Or maybe not all vm's are protected by the protection policy (metro).

2TB / 1TB is the used space shown in Prism Central

Hi Jeroen,

both containers are configured with 8TB advertised and reserved, storage pools are both about 125TiB

How are the containers configured (advertised size??) What is the storagepool size on both clusters?
