Event: "Virtual machine disks consolidation succeeded."

Post by marius roma » Jul 29, 2019 3:40 pm

I noticed that many VMs report an event "Virtual machine disks consolidation succeeded." after the backup completes.
Is it a normal behavior?
Is it the symptom of any problem?
How can I treroubleshoot the problem?
Regards

Hello,
before I merge this thread to the existing ones

1) is it a warning or an error?
2) does that happen every day? Or only once?
3) do you have a case number?

In general, you should see a "consolidation needed" also in the vSphere client on these VMs (before backup). The message itself means that the Veeam snapshot hunter is cleaning up snapshots (usually caused by VMware issues)

Best regards,
Hannes

Many thanks for your answer.
Let me provide some additional details:

1) is it a warning or an error?
It's an Information event I see among the events in the VCSA vSphere client
2) does that happen every day? Or only once?
On some given VMs it happens every day just before backup
3) do you have a case number?
No

Many thanks for your answer.
Let me provide some additional details:

1) is it a warning or an error?
---> It's an Information event I see among the events for the specific VMs in the VCSA vSphere client
2) does that happen every day? Or only once?
---> On some given VMs it happens every day just before backup
3) do you have a case number?
---> No

Given that the VMs are business critical, I need to ensure ther is no problem besides the event…

Hello,

then support is the way to go. Nobody in the forum can really know what is happening in your specific environment ;-)

Please post the case number for reference.

Best regards,
Hannes
