Nimble Recover Unused Space

I recently deleted a 1.3 TB virtual machine - but the Nimble does not show that I have that free space - how do I recover the 1.3 TB on the Nimble?

Re: Nimble Recover Unused Space

Are you running VMware ESX?

You need to execute "esxcli storage vmfs unmap" command on ESX server to trigger space reclaim.

Or you can reference to: Space Reclamation in vSphere 5.5 with Nimble Storage
