Consolidating servers vmware
Method 4: Use a Power Shell script The Get-Snapshot command, part of v Sphere Power CLI, can query VM snapshot information.
You can use it in scripts to produce reports on VMs that have active snapshots.
But what do you do when your snapshots start acting funny?
In this tip, we'll troubleshoot potential problems that may come up when using snapshots in v Sphere.
And a VM with snapshots will display the following: scsi0:0.present = "true" scsi0:0Name = "myvmname-000001.vmdk" If the above operation failed, your other options are to either clone the VM or clone the VM's disk file.If you have a snapshot running that is not in Snapshot Manager, you can attempt to delete it in one of two ways.First, create a new snapshot using the v Sphere Client and delete all snapshots from the snapshot manager after the new one has been created.To clone the VM, you can either use the clone function in v Center Server or the standalone v Center Converter application. Then, add a new hard disk and browse to the newly created disk file.When it's completed, shut down and delete the old VM. Log in to the ESX Service Console or ESXi Tech Support Mode. Power on the VM and verify everything is working before you delete the old disk and delta files.
