options to use when Disk Consolidation does not work
I have reading about the options that might resolved Disk Consolidation issues and some of them are here:
1 - Create a new snapshot and remove it, this might complete the consolidation
2 - vMotion the VM to another host and try to consolidate again
3 - Restart the management agents on the host where the VM is running and try to consolidate again
4 - Restart the Backup Services (one of the backup services might be locking the snapshot files, preventing them from consolidating)
5- Shutdown the VM, try to consolidate again
Regarding Option 3, I would like to know what would be the impact when your restart the management agents on the host. will this migrate the VMs to another host with no issue ?
if you have other options that can fix Disk Consolidation issue, please provide the options.
