Find which VM has snapshots on datastores

/ April 14th, 2011/ Posted in VMWare / No Comments »

Problem: Many VMs had snapshots not listed in snapshot manager but still existed on the filesystem.


Find all the snapshots on the datastores and clean them up by either cloning the virtual machine or command line tools.

Run this command on a host that has access to all the datastores you wish to scan.

find /vmfs/volumes/ -name “*delta*” -type f  -print0 | xargs -0 du –human-readable –total|less
