Alex Wheeler updated CLOUDSTACK-10281:
--------------------------------------
    Description: 
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 *VmwareStorageProcessor.java*

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.

We are using Cloudstack 4.10, and vSphere 6.0
