An error occurred while consolidating disks: One or more disks busy

Thursday, March 29, 2018 - by Keith A. Smith

We've all encountered the dreaded error "An error occurred while consolidating disks: One or more disks are busy" when trying to consolidate virtual machines in vmware.

To resolve this vmware has published articles like http://https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/2150414 but for me I found that simply shutting down the VM and the vCenter server seems to allow the consolidation process to complete when connecting to the hosts box directly via the vcenter client. I figured I take a few minutes to write this up since it may help someone else.
