I have  the following errors on my coming up on my file server:

Event ID 6 source virtual disk service
VDS fails to claim a disk (\\?\ide#cdromnecvmwar_vmware_ide_cdr10_______________1.00____#5&3a794e10&0&1.0.0#{53f56308-b6bf-11d0-94f2-00a0c91efb8b}) due to error. Error Code: 800705AA@0200000F

And Event ID 8 source Virtual Disk Service
Failed to open device \\?\ide#cdromnecvmwar_vmware_ide_cdr10_______________1.00____#5&3a794e10&0&1.0.0#{53f56308-b6bf-11d0-94f2-00a0c91efb8b}. Error code: 5AA@02000017

The server itself is Virtual running on VMware 5 and I did recently move the machine to a new data lun. Thats is the only change recently and Im not sure if its related to this error or not.

Quick shot in the dark here, but try removing anything associated with cd roms or mounted images if possible.

It looks like the windows server is complaining about the cd rom for some reason. Usually it wont allow you to migrate a vm if you have an image mounted but maybe something else with the cd was messed up in the move.
