The parent virtual disk has been modified since the child was created.

I did a quick migration of a vm (ESXi 6) via Veeam from one san unit to another. It went just fine but now I cant power up the vm since it has migrated.

I am getting this error when it tries to power on: The parent virtual disk has been modified since the child was created. The content id of the parent virtual disk does not match the corresponding parent content id in the child...

What steps do I need to take to get this vm to power back up?

Well it was not a big deal after all.
When I did try to use Veeam quick migration, I uncheck it to not delete the source when migrating. So after the vm would not come up, I just deleted the one that was not working and powered back on the orignal one.
Then this time I did migrate it but just the storage through the vsphere client and all worked fine.
Not sure why I tried to use the Veeam quick migration if the first place. Brain fart I guess lol
