an error occurred while consolidating disks: 5 (input/output error)
Recently had this error start occurring on a running VM. I can complete a replication of it so I do have the option move it to a different VM and then back but thought I would see if anyone knows how to deal with this problem so I can learn. The details I can offer are:
Disk has plenty of space, 368GB of 1.07TB.
RAID 5 with 3 hard drives on a Dell Perc 6 1GB controller...so IOPS are so so but decent enough for one exchange VM
I have tried rebooting my VM and Veeam server with no luck. Created snapshot and delete all completes but doesn't allow me to consolidate files
There are 67 vmdk files built up from just a week time period because of the Veeam backup retries after a failure. The Guest VM is using the highest numbered....vmname_1-0000067.vmdk
