Thick provision of VVols fails for ONTAP 9.4 storage systems
Thick provisioning of virtual volumes (VVols) fails when the VVol datastore does not contain thick-provisioned FlexVol volumes on an ONTAP 9.4 storage system.
You might receive error messages such as the following while provisioning the VVol:
com.netapp.vasa.vvol.exceptions.OutOfResourceException: Unable to find a location for a vvol of size 4,096 in storage container vvol_nfs_new - Checked 1 places. Specific reasons were vvol_nfs_new | Final Score: 0 | 100 -> 0 : FlexVol of vvol_nfs_new does not support required storage profile, details [FlexVolume with name vvol_nfs_new is not thick provisioned]
This error occurs if you do not have any thick-provisioned FlexVol volumes on the VVol.
Add a new FlexVol volume that has storage capability with thick provisioning enabled for the VVol.
Create a new virtual machine by using the FlexVol volume.
