Will disabling virtualization reclaim vbspace?

Hi all,

We have a WAVE-574 that came with virtualization enabled in the factory install. We do not want to use virtual blades on this device. According to the documentation, it seems that you cannot disable virtualization unless you reinstall from the recovery CD. So my two questions are:

1. I am assuming with this device you will get the option to NOT enable virtualization at install time; and

2. If this is the case, does having virtualization disabled reclaim the disk space that would normally be assigned to /vbspace (GUEST) and allow it to be used for CIFS and DRE caches?

Hello Adrian,

On WAVE platforms virtual-blade is always enabled and cannot be disabled (so there is no way to reclaim space). The procedure you're referring in the docs corresponds to the WAE devices (please check this -
