VM on XenServer

I have a snapshot of a VM that I exported after the VM crashed. I setup a new XenServer, but I can't get the VM started. Was told to check the read/write permissions, but I'm not that proficient with Xen. When I try to start the vm I get "Internal Error: Failure("Storage_access filed with Failure: Illegal VDI transition: activated RO -> activated RW"). I need access to this VM so I can move folders/files to another locatoin.

Thanks.

Setup a new XenServer, no pools. Pretty much set it up on a separate w/s since I'm only working with this one VM, and wanted to separate it from the production Xen...just in case.

Reboot the XenServer host once and try again.
