How can we improve the SDA (K2000)?

Enhance the KACE appliance to run VMWare in thin provisioned mode

Currently the appliance only is supported on VMWare on thick provisioned, can the system be adjusted to use thin provisioning instead so I don't have to tie up unused disk space?

    The reason this is not supported is because there are often times when capturing images or adding other items to the appliance that those processes fail because the appliance can't expand the size fast enough to capture images,etc when needed. You should be able to run thin provisioned just fine, but if there is a failure, that is the first thing to be looked at and multiple attempts should be made to accomplish whatever task is being tested. The only issue you will have is when calling into support with an issue related to this type of situation, because they know if thin provisioned errors tend to happen.
