VMDK corruption. Lock files preventing consolidation and mangled CID in the child.

This post was originally published on this site

I have a couple of hosts that I am unable to remediate.  


A few I cannot consolidate due to lock files.  When I go to find the owner of the lock I get ioctl errors.


Secondly, the other VM shoots me this error “An error occurred while consolidating disks: The parent virtual disk has been modified since the child was created. The content ID of the parent virtual disk does not match the corresponding parent content ID in the child.” 


I’ve run through KBs and gotten nowhere.  Any pointers would be appreciated.
