I have created a VM exactly how I want it. This VM uses Thick Provision, Eager Zeroed.
I power it off and start the cloning process. When the cloning process is finished, I check the new VM's disk format and it is always Thin Provision.
I have tried cloning with the option Disk Format = Same Format As Source, and Disk Format = Thick Provision, Eager Zeroed. No matter what I choose, the new VM always ends up with a Thin Provision disk.
I do have VMs on the system that are Thick Provision, Eager Zeroed. Also, I tried to INFLATE the VMDK file for the newly cloned VM, and while the system seemed to go through the motions, the VMDK file remained the original thin provison size.
