I need to clone a  live (production server) vm but  getting an error message.
error: reason = This operation is not supported with virtual disks in independent mode or raw disk mappings in physical compatibility mode

Yes it has 2 HDs  (1st is Persistent False and the 2nd Independent Persistent-RDM).  
I need only the 1st  Drive ie. the Persistent  False.  
How can I clone it (without shutting the VM).  Is there a work around.
