I had to reboot (one after the other) all three physical servers and guess what: The third one had a lock on one of the files!

Not exactly same situation but maybe this VMWare KB article helps little - http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=10051 And usually, if nothing else helps then power off and clone VM and then use cloned VM.

You can run VM consolidation without a major impact to your VM. It's not meant to take the VM offline.

SysInternals (Microsoft now) Disk2VHD. I can't afford SCVMM so this tool was invaluable when migrating from P2V https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee656415.aspx (you run it from inside the booted VM, saved the created VHD file somewhere, and then create a new Hyper-V VM from scratch, pointed to the VHD that was created by Disk2VHD)

For some workloads, I use the sysinternals tool disk2vhd. Stop all required services first, and you can perform the migration with a powered on virtual machine and avoid copying two times the disk as some solutions do. Good luck.

You should see this screen in the MVMC for the destination path for the converted VM. Create a shared folder on your desired storage location and select it in the conversion wizard.
