Ok , this is what I set during installation process:
hd size: 2000.
swapsize: blank
maxroot: blank
minfree: 1000
maxvz: 1000.

After install , this is what I got:

How to set "Hard disk options" to accomplish my desired schemme:
   LVM (/dev/pve/root)  = 1T.
 LVM-thin = 1TB.
Remaining =< 3TB. reserved for future use.

Regards,
Leandro.
