Copied VM issue

This post was originally published on this site

Hi,

I used vSphere client to download a vm. I upload the vm into another host and tried to boot it up but got an error (error below). Only then I realise that the actual vm has snapshots. When I compare the two vm from two different host, the files are different. Can anything be done to make the copied vm work? Can anyone help? Thank you.

 

====================================================================================

Failed to start the virtual machine.

Module Disk power on failed.

Cannot open the disk ‘SBFile2012-000001.vmdk’ or one of the snapshot disks it depends on.

The system cannot find the file specified

VMware ESX cannot find the virtual disk “SBFile2012-000001.vmdk”. Verify the path is valid and try again.

====================================================================================
