    VMWare Migrate.DiskOpsEnable for Nimble... set to 0 or 1?

    Sal Bonaccorso Newbie

      In a standard deployment of VMWare ESXi hosts under advanced settings there is a value called Migrate.DiskOpsEnabled and by default it is set to 0 (ZERO).

       

      My question is for a Nimble array (CS460G-X2) should this setting be set to 1 or 0? 

       

      My understanding is that this switch allows SCSI commands to be offloaded to the Array to perform the work rather than operating over the VMotion network.

       

      If there is a clear answer on how to set it to 1 or 0 please let me know.  If there are different scenarios in which you want it set a certain way, please let me know the criteria to look for to answer if it should be set to 1 or 0 based on our environment.
