Can't boot VMWare virtual mchine after resizing disk
Posted on 2011-10-06
Using the instructions provided by VMWare, I increased the size of one of my virtual machines from 100Gb to 120Gb using the command line (Running VMWare server on a Windows 2003 Server host). I have 4 other VM's running on this server, and I only increased the size on one of them. The "Growth" ran successfully, but when I go to start the VM now, I get the following error:
Cannot open <myfilename>-00005.vdmk or one of the snapshot disks it depends on. Reason: The parent virtual disk has been modified since the child was created.
So, it looks like it's trying to open the latest snapshot and is having issues. I thought I removed all the snapshots before running the resize command, but maybe not. What can I do to fix the issue?
