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.

How do I remove and reattach the RDM on a Live Production VM? Could you give me the steps please. Thanks.
