I have an ESXi 5 server which hosts two windows servers.
One server crashed yesterday as we ran out of disk space. This is an Exchange server which has vmdk file of around 500Gb.
Now the major issue is a few months ago someone took a snapshot and it has been forgotten about.
the snap shot 000001.vmdk file is a whopping 420Gb file.
One of my colleagues started the snap shot commit yesterday at 15:36 gmt - some 18 hours ago
The snapshot delete is stuck on 99%
The free disk space is 16Gb
I am working remotely and the SSH has not been enabled.
So all in all this is a very precarious situation.
I am trying to formulate a plan for best way forward - any tips from some experts would be greatly appreciated
Thanks in advance
