Hi

I'm thinking about SAN transport mode for our VM backups.
For that you must zone the VM datastores on the windows server and disable the automount function.

Unfortunately there is this "Initialize Disk" popup. I'm really afraid of that one day someone, even myself, click on "ok" when opening the disk mgmt.
Is there a way to disable that popup?

Thanks

    Hi,

    Thanks for posting on our forum!

    After my research, in Windows you can disable the Windows low disk space warning by changing the DWORD Value for correspondent registry key. But I haven't found any articles about silencing "Initiatize Disk" warning. If you want to disable "Initiatize Disk", as far as I know, you can:

    1. Go to Github to see if there is any script to achieve your goal. Here is the link:

    2) Go to contact VMware engineer supporters, to see if they have any methods to disable this warning. I noticed that you use VMware, then I helped you find an article stating that VMware technical supporters may be able to help you disable alerts like "Initiatize Disk":
    https://docs.vmware.com/en/vRealize-Operations-Manager/8.4/com.vmware.vcom.core.doc/GUID-37E0EBFF-2250-4268-A2F5-8FF2635B052B.html

    (Please note: Information posted in the given link is hosted by a third party. Microsoft does not guarantee the accuracy and effectiveness of information.)

    In addition, I will keep track on this issue and discuss with my colleagues to see if there is any methods to change the policy to silence "Initiatize Disk".

    Thanks for your support! Besides, would you please help me Accept Answer. An accepted blog can be put on top of our forum, so that people who have a similar issue can get access to their solution more quickly. I would really appreciate it if you could support my work.

    BR,
