Description (partial)

Virtual machine disk consolidation required error after native snapshot removal. Virtual machines flagged with ?Virtual Machine disks consolidation is needed?

When CommVault backs up virtual machines running within HyperFlex cluster, Native HyperFlex snapshots are taken and removed upon completion. However, vCenter  report "VM disk consolidation is required" within vSphere. This alert is thrown for the existing sentinel snapshot that is not updated regularly. Commvault needs sentinel snapshot to be present for native HX snapshots tot be taken. 

CommVault also reports error as part of the data ageing job: HX Failed to delete Snap.Error Message [Delete snapshot snapshot-100 failed for entity vm-xx. A previously issued Snapshot Now task is in progress on this entity.
