One of my VMs on ESXi 4 lost one of its shapshot .vmdk files - the first snapshot in a chain of two. The rest of the files are intact.
The VM won't boot - but I've found a temporary solution here: http://www.itexperience.net/2008/03/03/howto-recreate-vmdk-files/
- which I am applying now to get the VM up and running using a new VM and the original copied-over flat.vmdk files (copying them now - large - 40GB each).
My question - is it possible to copy over and re-apply my latest snapshot files to the new VM once I get it running?
