i tried to added checkpoint.disablCpuCheck="true" on the vmx file, but it does no help, anyone have some good solution?
I cannot do anything on that VM now, neither power on nor change any settings there.
@JohnnyLeung I'll assume your working with a VM that has Snapshots and was copied to a different system then it was created on. I'd suggest, if possible, deleting the Snapshots via the Snapshot Manager. Or use vmware-vdiskmanager to create a new .vmdk from the existing on while pointing to the snapshot.vmdk that is the current one in the .vmx configuration file and then either swap the virtual disks out or create a new VM from the new .vmdk file.
yes, the VM is with snapshot.
what I have done is in esxi 4.1 update 1, originally having 2 esxi hosts, and I shut down all guest OS (some of them with snapshot), and added 1 extra host to the cluster. But at that time, I need to downgrade the Vmotion EVC mode a level because of the hardware are not exactly the same.
After added the host, there was not problems and warnings. but when I tried to revert a VM with snapshot, it failed...then that VM cannot be start anymore.
Any chance that I can keep the snapshot and make the VM available again? I cannot shut down the host again as it is in production environment.
your help is highly appreciate. thank you.
