We found an issue where the SAN wasn’t using VAAI commands correctly.
So,  we need to disable it.
Here is the code to do that:

$allhosts = get-vmhost
foreach($singlehost in $allhosts){
Set-VMHostAdvancedConfiguration -VMHost $singlehost -Name DataMover.HardwareAcceleratedMove -Value 0
Set-VMHostAdvancedConfiguration -VMHost $singlehost -Name DataMover.HardwareAcceleratedInit -Value 0
Set-VMHostAdvancedConfiguration -VMHost $singlehost -Name VMFS3.HardwareAcceleratedLocking -Value 0

Value of 1 = Enabled
Value of 0 = Disabled
