I have several RAC clusters using VMware ESXi servers running ESXi 6.5 U2. Setup: 2 ESXi Servers, connected to a single SAN storage device.

When I make a new drive that I want to setup as Multi-Shared between two Oracle nodes in a RAC cluster the drive shows as: Thick provisioned, eagerly zeroed, but when I attempt to add the created disk to the second node it shows up as: Thick provisioned, lazily zeroed. This is not correct and I am unable to add the disk as shared to the second node of the cluster.

Any help would be appreciated.

  • imho it is a bug in the GUI. Try to edit vmx file manually a to create the disk manually – ibre5041 Jul 14 at 7:15
