vmware: you cannot make a clone of a shared or remote virtual machine
Posted on 2012-12-29
I am new to vmware but I like it so far. I have a server loaded with esx4 and I would like to clone a vm. Even with the vm powered off and sharing disabled, it launches the wizard and says:
you cannot make a clone of a shared or remote virtual machine
Is this because I am using VMWare Workstation 8 on my local pc and connecteing to the esx host and it is then considered a remote connection? Do I have to create a vm to just run this program and then it will be considered local?
I just want a way to make clones.
