HI Salvatore,

When I remove a virtual machine from one of the cluster nodes I see that the disk space used by the VM is not freed.

Knowing that the VM is stored physically on the storage "SR-iSCSI DRDB", can I use the functionality "reclaim freed space" to free the space after remove VM ?

Thank very much Salvatore

I've never used that feature, but don't see any problem with using it.

Hi Aderuel,

There is nothing unique about the storage we expose to the pool. It is simply an iSCSI SR as far as the hosts are concerned. Any chance that some of your VMs were created from a "fast copy" of an existing VM? Another possibility is that you could have some rather old snapshots laying around which will continue to grow over time, consuming space.
