Copied VM issue

This post was originally published on this site


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.
