VMware server powered off and no longer will power on.
Receiving the following error: "Virtual Machine disks consolidation is needed"
My datastore is 2.0TB, and even through my total storage is about 1.5, the summary of my storage shows that the non-shared storage AND the used storage are both at 2.0TB (with 8mb free).
I have no snapshots -- I did a delete all in the snapshot manager a few days ago and they cleared out (after a few hours).
A couple days later, I'm finding myself in this situation with a full datastore. I checked the datastore and I do have some 000001.vmdk that seem to mimic the 01-1 (etc) vmdk drives.
I'm unsure of the dangers of running the consolidation. Should I proceed?
