    Checking if virtual machine consolidation is required

    To check if virtual machine consolidation is required:
    Select a vCenter Server host or a cluster and click the Virtual Machines tab.
    Right-click the menu bar for any virtual machine column and click Needs Consolidation. The Needs Consolidation column appears.

    A Yes status indicates that the snapshot files for the virtual machine should be consolidated and that the virtual machine’s Tasks and Events tab shows a configuration problem.
    A No status indicates that the files are OK.

    Note: A Configuration Issue warning is also displayed in the Summary tab of the virtual machine indicating that virtual machine disk consolidation is needed.

    C is wrong because is not present Needs Consolidation column in the virtual machine summary tab.
