I have an issue where I have a VM running off a snapshot, but I can't consolidate it the usual way because it 's not visible via the Snapshot Manager.
My issue described here: http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&docTypeID=DT_KB_1_1&externalId=2003638
The problem for me is, this VM has 65 GB C: and 600 GB data drive. I have only 50 GB left on the datastore. I need to take a snapshot of this VM and then delete it immediately afterwards in hopes that it consolidates the other snapshots.
My question is, how do I know that my 50 GB free space will be enough space for the snapshot? Is there a way to determine this?
