Using ESXi 5.0, I had a disk which was converted from VHD to VMDK using Winimage which left me with a sparse VMDK.
I tried to snapshot the VM after importing it which caused a problem. I believe I manually pointed it back to the original VMDK which then allowed it to boot again. Snapshot Manager shows an active snapshot from that date still.
I would like to delete it but want to be certain exactly which files will be deleted from the datastore since this was not a typical successful snapshot. How can I verify? Does the snapshot manager just use the VMX file? Can I view the vmsn file using the cat command via ssh?
This is a standalone host with no vcenter, just vsphere client and SSH into the terminal.
