To move the CBT files and consolidate snapshots:
- SSH to Host
- Navigate to the VM folder using this command:
- Create a temporary directory for the CBT files.
- Move the CBT files to temp directory.
mv *-ctk.vmdk temp/
- Run the snapshot consolidation again.
If you receive the following error another VM likely has the disk mounted, probably from a backup process. Shutdown the VM, remove the disk, restart the VM. In some cases you may need to reboot the ESX.
