Does OMV support thin provisioning

  • I am thinking of making the move from freenas to omv due to iscsi issues with my xenserver. However before I make the move I would like to know if OMV supports thin provisioning and how that would be done since I am not seeing any documentation on that.


    Thanks

  • Hello @mercxi,


    While OMV does not have a way or guide (that I know of) how to do this, you have three options you can consider. 1. Install the LVM plugin and use it to create your thin provisioned iscsi targets. 2. Install the ZFS plugin from omv-extras.org and use it to create your thin provisioned iscsi targets. 3. Partition a drive to the desired size for each iscsi target.


    I have used LVM before to do this but not with the ZFS plugin.
