VMware – Virtual Machine Consolidation Needed.

One of the virtual machine was not responding and was unable to power on the machine. When check on alarm, there was a message stating “Virtual Machine Consolidation Needed”.

In order to consolidate virtual machine disk, right click on the virtual machine, navigate to snapshot and choose consolidate.

After the consolidation is over machine will be able to power on.

Note:

1. Consolidation needed due to multiple snapshots.
2. Removal of snapshot takes long time considering the size of the disk.
3. If consolidation is stopped, it may lead to data corruption.
4. Virtual machine performance may be degraded during snapshot.

Thanks,
WintelAdmin.
