esxi OVA drive size?

Hi there, we just upgraded to Prism Central using the ESXi OVA, and during creation noticed that there is a 500GB 3rd disk set to thick provisioning. This caused some space concerns on an already tight container, so I flipped it over to thin provisioned although I didnt really want to :)

A couple questions.... is this 500GB drive 3 normal? I dont remember having these space concerns with the prior PC install.

Any forseen issues with the thin provisioning? other than possible space not available as the disk expands.

Appreciate the comments/thoughts..

First of all, thin provisioning is fine.

500GB is recommended for this release. The reason being is that Prism Central now collects more data for the operations analytics and can preserve the metrics history way beyond 3 months.
