aux.xml file retained on datastore after VM Migration
Posted on 2015-01-05
I successfully migrated a couple of VMs from the local host datastore to shared storage.
However after migration, i see there is a '-aux.xml' file that has remained on the local datastore for each VM that was migrated. I want to use the local datastore for Backup To Disk jobs.
A quick google search reveals that this file is used to track changes occurring during snapshot activities?
I just need clarity on whether if i delete these files, there will be big issues? (VM failures/errors).
Or should i just manually move the file and add it to the VM folder at it's new location?
