One of my VM needs consolidation, but while doing it I got an error ” Unable to access file since it is locked.
My question is:
Is it safe to connect to datacenter via WinSCP, open that VM folder and delete the hostname.vmx.lck file?
I have decided to power off one of esx, then automatic vmotion to second esx was done and after powered on the first esx again I was able to consolidate.
One way or the other it’s sure solution from your link would be better instead of switching off esx…
