I had a VM created and apparently I didn't realize how small the partition was.. so late last night I decided to increase the partition size using "vmkfstools -X 100G /vmfs/volumes/your_datastore/your_vm/vm01.vmdk"
Well.. as fate would have it, I also forgot I had a couple snapshots.. now when I try to boot the VM it fails.. Reason: The parent virtual disk has been modified since the child was created
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to proceed? I spent numerous hours configuring the application running on the VM so would HATE to loose all that time.
