XP24000 Thin Provisioning



I'm looking at using VMware with XP24000 thin provisioning.  The XP guide suggests not to use a ThP LUN with a 'thin format' vmdk quoting 'unpredictable results'.


Looking at similar products (HDS USP V) this configuration is allowed, with a note about high IOPS.


Has anyone tried this?  What are the 'unpredictable results'?  HP seems to be the only vendor without concrete guidance on this.


Any advice welcome,
