Vmware snapshots not consolidating jewish and gentile dating
And of course you could also consolidate the delta disk(s) using Power CLI using $VM. Thanks to my colleage Alan Renouf for the Power CLI guidance.
This new feature should save you a lot of time when dealing with any future snapshot consolidation issues.
This copy job worked fine over the weekend, and all seemed well.
However my consultant, when he provisioned the new volume did not leave enough space in that datastore for VM Snapshot consolidation to take place after such a massive amount of data was created.
We now ship the Remove All Snapshots method with an option to not consolidate snapshots when it is invoked.We use Veeam to backup all our VMs, and, of course, Veeam sends automated commands to v Center to consolidate snapshots at the end of a backup job.The snapshot consolidation failed and my VM was unresponsive during the time it took to recover from that failure.Meanwhile, my consultant is advising me that consolidation goes considerably faster with the VM powered off, and that I should let it run over the weekend with the VM powered off and inform my users of planned weekend downtime.He believes that consolidation will complete within one day.
