consolidate virtual machine disk files the operation is not allowed in the current state

This post was originally published on this site

Hello Guys, I Have a VM on ESXI That I don’t use anymore but i only need the files on the VMDISK. So i export the vmdk file.

I just need the existing files. When I opened the disc I found only old things, so I realized that the updates were in the snapshot. But I can’t merge the snapshot with the parent disk showing this error:

 

Consolidate VMDisks

Key:                     haTask-1-vim.VirtualMachine.consolidateDisks-139217140

Description:          Consolidate disk files of this virtual machine

Virtual machine:   hpfunilaria_server

State:                    Failed – The operation is not allowed in the current state.

 

 

 

 

so I went to consult the log:
