I can see the issue, and it should hopefully be easy to fix ... I can't send any changes back at the moment as I'm using my iPad on the train, but will upload a fix later on tonight (unless someone else does before me). The disk is configured to use an IDE controller and needs to be changed to a SCSI device (just take note of the SCSI channel already in use)
You might want to have a go yourself, have look at this;
Ok, excellent. I'm not sure how to go about changing it from your link. Your help is greatly appreciated!
Replace your current VMX file with this one attached - should hopefully work
You always have the option of rolling back to the original one that you uploaded.
PIC-JVM-v0001.vmx 1.8 K
At first when I hit settings after swapping the file, the first error changed to "An IDE controller is found but the virtual machine does not support the option." But then I powered it off and on one more time and the error went away...
What did you change in the file? I have to do it to 6 more machines. Thanks so much btw, I would up the creek without your help.
So this one is working now - is that correct? - don't forget to award helpful and/or correct points
I removed these entries;
ide0:0.fileName = "PIC-JVM-v0001-000001.vmdk"
ide1:0.present = "TRUE"
ide1:0.clientDevice = "TRUE"
ide1:0.deviceType = "cdrom-raw"
ide1:0.startConnected = "FALSE"
ide0:0.redo = ""
ide1:0.fileName = "/usr/lib/vmware/isoimages/windows.iso"
scsi0:0.deviceType = "scsi-passthru"
scsi0:0.fileName = "/vmfs/devices/cdrom/mpx.vmhba1:C0:T0:L0"
scsi0:0.allowGuestConnectionControl = "FALSE"
And added these;
ide0:0.clientDevice = "true"
ide0:0.deviceType = "cdrom-raw"
ide0:0.startConnected = "false"
scsi0:0.fileName = "PIC-JVM-v0001-000001.vmdk"
scsi0:0.deviceType = "scsi-hardDisk"
scsi0:0.redo = ""
Although there's a high probability that the other six that you need to do will be similar to this, they will have to be assessed individually and changed accordingly.
I was able to manually change a second one. Thanks again for all your help.
No problem at all - good to hear that you have it working on your own
