Our backup takes what appear to be custom snapshots that do not get listed within Snapshot Manager. One of our clients went down Sunday and while troubleshooting it I found that there was 1TB of free space listed on the Datastore, but in reality 3 of the VMs had become stunned due to running out of space completely. There were 46 snapshots in the folder for one of the VMs. Though I resolved this issue by creating a 0 space snapshot and then running a consolidation, I'm STILL left with the question:
VMWare Version 5.5.0
Why is the Datastore not accurately reflecting Free Space in regards to snapshots?
