We have a VMware 5.1 cluster with VDP backup.
I was storage vmotioning several vm's the other day and the VDP got stupid and was running for more than 12 hours.  Users were complaining about the slow down so I forcibly shut down the VDP servers. (They were taking wayyyyy to long to shut down)  Now I have vdp snapshots left with my VMs.  I tried to vstorage motion one vm and it hung at 81%.  After a rather long process of removing the vm and recreating and pointing to the vmdk it is back up but do not want to go thru the process for 6 more VMs.
If I power up VDP will it clean up?
Is there any other way to clean them up? (is consolidate safe?)

Any help is appreciated...  very stressed out right now.
Thanks
