I'm a complete Noob when it comes to VCD, never used it before, but I've been tasked into consolidating the disks for a particular virtual machine. Can someone link me to any documentation on how to fix this issue? I'm assuming because VCD is involved that I cannot do what I normally do, which is to log into the vCenter and storage migrate the VM to release locks then run the consolidate command.
is the VM Provisioned with Fast Provisioning (Linked Clone)? If not you can also use vCenter without any hassle to Consolidate the Disks.
I have used the vDisk ChainLength as an indicator. If TP is enabled is a OrgDVS Storage Setting, but if you disable it after a Vm is provisioned via TP the Chain will no be removed automatically.
