I was in a meeting the other day talking about our VMWare implementation and one of our Windows engineers brought up a comment that I wanted to throw out to everyone.
He was told by a VMWare engineer that if you run Windows defragmenation on the virtual server while also are using de-duplication on the storage, it can cause corruption of data on the virtual server and/or the VMDK. He hasn't been able to get any documentation on this fact, so we are not sure if this is true or not.
Does anyone have any experience with this or know of anyone who has? Any information would be appreciated. Thanks.
