Vmware esxi 5 The parent virtual disk has been modified since the child was created.
Posted on 2012-03-24
I have an urgent problem I cant seem to fix.
I have 1 physical server with fibre SAN with mutiple VM's. VM's are located on the san but snapshots go to my NAS.
I found my NAS was disconnected from my vmware datastore and none of my VM's were running.
I had to recreate the NAS datastore which gave me a new UUID which i edited in each VM's .vmx workingdir line.
Now, some of my VM's run no problem but my Domain Controller has reverted to a old snapshot back in January so none of my other servers will authenticate, i get a trust relationship error.
When I try and change the .vmx file to use the most recent version, or use snapshot manager to go to the most recent, i get this error;
The parent virtual disk has been modified since the child was created. The content ID of the parent virtual disk does not match the corresponding parent content ID in the child.
