Hello i have a problem with one of our hosts and one virtual machine in it. Some days ago problem with corrupted redo logs comes out. I removed every snapshots. And try to consolidate. But every time when i want to run consolidation it fails with error Input/Output. I have added this host in Vcenter. Storage have a plenty free space and host dont alarms any storage problems.

Thigns i allready tries:

Create snapshot and moment after run "delete all".
Chkdsk virtual hdd.
Add a parameter max consolidation time = 30

What i want to do next week is update my Esxi 5.5. I have there old version 1331820. Or it is useless with this problem?

Can someone help me with my consolidation problem? :(
