Last night Veeam Backup Job has given an error for a virtual machine. When I looked at this virtual machine in the morning, I saw that it was closed because there was no space on the hard disk (retry / ignore screen). however, there was enough free disk space. At the same time, Veeam could not delete the temporary snapshot that it created for this virtual machine.
for this reason the virtual machine needed disk consolidation.
I increased the disk size through the storage and I could open the virtual machine.
then I started the consolidation for the virtual machine with vSphere. but every time I got this error. "an error occurred while consolidating disks: 5 (input / output error)
I shut down the virtual machine and tried again.
I manually deleted the temporary snapshot, my attempt failed.
I tried to manually take the snopshot and it failed.
I manually deleted the SnapShot that I took manually and tried again.
how can I get rid of this situation? I really need help. because in this case the virtual machine is over-consuming hard disk. Today I made a 100GB disk increase in total, but it quickly consumed this space too.
Thank you in advance for your support.
