    'Virtual machine Consolidation Needed status' alarm question

    citpaj Enthusiast

      I have a virtual machine showing a 'Virtual machine Consolidation Needed status'  alarm.  From what I have read on-line, this can happen if a snapshot file exists and is not recognized by Snapshot Manager, which is not the case here.  I have checked Snapshot Manager and no snapshots exist, and I've checked the datastore, and no snapshot files exist.  Should I just acknowledge the alarm, or should I consolidate?  In my mind, if there's no snapshot file, there's no point in running the consolidation ... it might simply error-out, or tell me there are no snapshots.  I wanted some expert opinions before I take any action,  Thanks.
