Vmware snapshots not consolidating

Another thing you can do is check if there is actual changes going on with the vmdk files.

When you commit a snapshot you basically take the delta files and merge them into the base disk.

In order to do it, only one test virtual machine with the snapshots should remain on the storage. Haven’t you ever attempted some operation on a v Sphere VM – VMotion, disk consolidation, etc.and received a v Center error stating the operation failed because of some lock on the VM’s vmdk?As a reminder, initialization of deleting snapshots in v Sphere Client with Delete All function leads to their immediate deletion from GUI, but at the storage, this process takes much time.If an error occurs during deletion, then snapshot files may stay there on the storage.
