vReplicator fails with the message: - " 'Consolidate Helper' snapshot found"

VMWare ESX/ESXi creates a temporary snapshot called "Consolidated Helper" during the snapshot deletion/consolidation. It should be deleted automatically but if it's left behind (possibly due to performance issue or insufficient disk space), vReplicator will fail. To fix this, make sure there's enough free space and then just remove this snapshot manually through Snapshot Manager. After it reaches 95%, be patient as it may take a very long time depending on the virtual disk size to commit the snapshot. If it still fails, try creating a new snapshot and then select "Delete All".
