Method eagerZeroVirtualDisk_Task(String name, VcDatacenter datacenter)

Explicitly zero out unaccessed parts zeroedthick disk. Effectively a no-op if the disk is already eagerZeroedThick. Unlike zeroFillVirtualDisk, which wipes the entire disk, this operation only affects previously unaccessed parts of the disk.

The datacenter parameter may be omitted if a URL is used to name the disk.

Requires Datastore.FileManagement privilege on the datastore where the virtual disk resides.

Returns

VcTask
