VMWARE snapshot breaks cluster service
Posted on 2008-10-17
We have VMWARWE ESX 3.5i running and we use VMWare converter to convert one of our servers into VM. The server we converting is Windows2003 with cluster services.
Eveything is working fine after initial convert, then we tried rebooting like 3-4 times everything comes up fine.
1. After installing VMWARE tools it breaks the cluster service and unable to start cluster.
2. After taking a snapshot it breaks the cluster service also and unable to start cluster.
Issue 1 we can live without vmware tools, but issue #2 we need help figuring out.
If we delete the snapshot after, then boot up the server everything comes up fine.
