Just wondering if I can power on a VM that is going through Consolidation.There's no snapshots listed but it threw up an warning that is was needed. Its a very large VM on ESXI 6.7 that is consolidating very slowly so should I try to wait it out or can I safely power it on? Thank in advance
Cancelling a snapshot task is not recommended, unless you have a valid backup of the VM which can be reverted to in case it gets corrupted during the cancelling of the task. However if you ask me personally, it is a strong NO NO!
If you still want to proceed with the cancellation, you can refer to the steps in the blog - Cancel Remove Snapshot Task | Virtual Allan. If it does not cancel, restart the management agents on the host (this will obviously kill the other running tasks as well).
Thanks very much. I am not sure whether to wait this out or not since it is taking quite a long time but I am hoping that I can get this up and running soon.
