An error occurred while consolidating disks msg fileio lock

However the consolidate operation may fail again, if the issue which caused the snapshot deletion operation to fail disk consolidation previously has not been cleared.

It has been a good 6 months or more since I've last seen this issue, but today I found a VM with this issue in another customers environment.

Diese Warnungsmeldung erscheint hin und wieder, wenn man Backup-Lösungen, wie Veeam Backup oder Quantum vm PRO einsetzt.

To confirm that, I went into the file on the host that it was sitting on and start reviewing the logs.

Of course it says it can’t have access to the disk yet it doesn’t show me who’s locking it.

At the end of the day, I used Storage v Motion to move the VM to another datastore, and then I was able to successfully consolidate the virtual machine.

After that was completed, I immediately performed a new backup that was successful.
