hi, we are going to migrate vmware data to new storage (VSP) by using vmware storage vmotion. Because it is online our task is to provisioned a disk and present to VMware ESX for them to initiate migrate..while migrating is running to new storage, they are requesting more space from storage. when we view in storage HDP, the usage size not more than 50%.. we provisioned 2TB x 8 to the esx. Anything that we can do to ensure vmware will use the max size of provisioned LUN? But total usage for all LUNS is..according to vmware team, their vmotion will migrate all in the luns..if they said the lun is 500GB, they will use the 500GB space instead what they are using currently
