Quick design decision:
I'm designing an iSCSI based VMware solution with a physical Veeam proxy server. I hope to do Direct SAN Backups (3PAR). I've got 2 x 10Gb iSCSI ports on the Proxy and 2 x 1Gb for management. So if I go Thick on the VM I'm good and can get Direct SAN Backup AND Restores.
I'd like to use the new vSphere 6.5 UNMAP feature which requires THIN VMs! This is required for in guest UNMAP. Dooh!
Am I missing anything or are these two features mutually exclusive?!
