I'm getting an error when trying to "grow" a VM disk in our farm. The error is "File <Unspecified Filename> was not found." I'm running out of disk space on this disk and need to do an extend. But I keep getting this error. Anyone ever seen this one?

you might try restarting the management service on the host.  Restarting the Management agents on an ESX or ESXi Server (http://kb.vmware.com/kb/1003490)

If that doesn't help, can you post a screenshot of the setting of the VM from within Edit Settings?

After detaching the VM and then reattaching it, the correct mapping for the locations of all the files that make up that specific VM resolved.
