I made a couple of snapshots while I upgraded a server.  Everything has gone well so I want keep what I have.

What should I do?  There seems to be a few options like delete snapshot and consolidate.

Delete snapshot is what you want.  If, for any reason, it fails to delete, I believe consolidate is there to clean up.

You should always delete all snapshots.

If needed to consolidate vCenter will let you know.

So to delete snapshots always go for thr first option.
