             Summary: vSphere VM disks do not honor the Service Offering 
Provisioning Type selected
                 Key: CLOUDSTACK-10281
             Project: CloudStack
          Issue Type: Bug
      Security Level: Public (Anyone can view this level - this is the default.)
          Components: Template, VMware
    Affects Versions:
            Reporter: Alex Wheeler

Regardless of the Provisioning Type selected (Fat, Sparse, Thin), all 
instantiated vSphere VM disks are thin when the storage supports thin.

Doing a little sleuthing, it turns out that the creation of data disks is 
easily fixed in **

However, the root disk is always created as a clone with the same disk type as 
the template, which being ova is always thin.  The vSphere API seems to allow 
specifying the disk type during clone, and we've taken a stab at that, but so 
far to no avail.

Hoping someone can shed some light on this.  Code samples forthcoming.
