Vmware Workstations 7 Shifting physical drives to new PC
Posted on 2012-03-16
hoping someone can help me with this, i have shifted our server to a new box i run SBS in Vmware Workstations 7 i have built a new machine and shifted the physical drives to the new machine but when i try to boot the server on the new box i get this message "Cannot open the disk 'E:\Scaus_server - Data\Windows Server 2008 SBS x64-0.vmdk' or one of the snapshot disks it depends on.
Reason: Failed to lock the file.".
on the new machine the drive letters are different i have changing them back to match the letters but the letter D is not available for use so when i booted the server it asked were the drive was located which i located it but it just cam up with the above error
