Issue Description
LUN requirements for deduplication.
Solution
When a thick LUN is created, the relationship between its physical and logical addresses has already been fixed. This does not meet deduplication requirements. For deduplication, you must modify the mapping relationship between the physical and logical addresses.

In addition, deduplication requires space reclamation. The pointer of the thick LUN's logical address cannot be changed. Therefore, the space cannot be reclaimed.
