    Hi,

    I have a Proxmox server with a bunch of local disks (10 + SSD for ZIL and L2ARC) mounted in ZFS Raidz2 for the VMs.
    When I have mounted the storage I forgot to enable the Thin Provision.

    I have many VMs running on this storage and I want to know if it's possible to enable now without danger ?

    Best regards,
    Christian

    Hi,

    Yes but all you existing VM will have no effect of this change.
    The thin provisioned flag is used at creation time of a virtual disk image.
    So all new images will be thin provisioned but the old stay as they are.

    Perfect, it's noted.
