1) The VCX_255_H I installed on ESXi uses 88GB due to Thick Provisioning. It boots OK. How can I reduce it's RiOS datastore size size so it does not consume so much os the ESXi datastore? I'm only experimenting so the RiOS datastore does not need to be that big.
2) The installation instructions for VCX_255_H on ESXi say to use Thick Provisioning. Given than I'm just experimenting is Thin Provisioning acceptable? What are the consequences as far as Steelhead funtion to use Thin instead of Thick?
3) What is the difference between these 2 images I got when I applied for Virtual Steelhead Trial,
You are likely to see performance problems if doing thin provisioning but you can probably get away with it for a trial.
You have a VCX 255H so you want to use image_rbt_vcx_8_6_1_n60_x86_64.ova for the ESXi deployment. The other OVA is for the original virtual Steelhead (VSH).
