how to do Datastore Housekeeping
Posted on 2009-02-09
our Environemt consists of about 80 ESX Hosts and has more than 20 Datastores presented with each one around 1TB Capacity.
Multiple people have access and I think that over time there have been a lot of VM's deleted from VC but not from the actual Datastores. This causes obviously a lot of space wasted.
Does anyone know a tool/programm which can help us identify data (unused VM's) on Datastores and therefore give us the ability to delete them and free up space again?
It is quiet a hassle to do this tedious task manually and since we have multiple people with access to VC and capability to create VM's i would like to know if there is a nice and simple house keeping tool which can help with keeping the Datastores clean.
