I have the same issue, seems like it only happen on vms that i migrated using the vmware converter tool.

I experienced the same issue on 6.7 when trying to perform a storage vMotion converting the disk to Thin Provisioned  to a new VMFS6 datastore. The VM in question had a single disk and I noticed it was residing on two different datastores under the VM list. Further digging I found that one of the DS that it was on was my DS that I store all ISOs on, someone had left an ISO mapped to the VM. Once changing CD/DVD Drive to "Client Device" the VM disappeared from the ISO DS and the error was no longer present when trying to perform the storage vMotion. Steps to change CD/DVD drive to client device are below, I hope this helped.

  1. Right Click VM
  2. Edit Settings
  3. Select CD/DVD Drive Drop Down Menu
  4. Select "Client Device"
  5. Select OK to save changes

I got the same issue on VMware ESXi, 6.7.0, 8169922.

This helped me out:

1.Shutdown VM

2.Migrate manually to another host

3.Start VM

After that, Virtual Machines Consolidation Needed status came up.

Snapshot -> consolidate -> Vm working fine.

Hi everyone, I talked almost 200 vm via vmconvert, unfortunately I also have this message DISK2000, but I can't remove it. I have read all the cases, none of the above cases helped me. Some other advice ?

Thanks Alessandro

Try deleting the snapshots of the VM.

Me too:

VM with no snapshots and "Client Device" selected for CDROM (on vSAN with vSphere 6.7.0-u1, buried under the bloated useless VxRAIL overhang).

Just ran across this error..  For what it is worth my target NFS mount for .vmdk file copying across datastores on a storage vMotion migration was "read-only".  Once target NFS mount was set to "read/write" this error went away and copying proceeded successfully.
