VMX file in ESX 3.5
Posted on 2009-04-04
I used Veeam FastSCP to copy a Guest OS to my harddrive and then I deleted the VM from the datastore.
I then copied it back, all welll and good, but I could not get the datastore to see it, I found out that it did not "have" a vmx file, so I recreated the vmx file, the datastore saw, and life was good.
But when I use datastore browser it does not see the VMX file nor does FastSCP, if I log in to the host I can find it in the directory.
All other VM's have vmx files, and I can see them in the datastore.
the permissons on the vmx file look standard, rwxr-xr-x
also on a 2nd note, anyone use FastSCP to copy a running VM?
