Where I can delete others reference about id 2900?
Please I'm new about virtual and esx operating system, anybody can help me
thanks very much for the help
What's you'll need to do is use something like MS Access to connect into the MSDE database.
The error is cause by there being a Virtual Machine listed the VPX_ENTITY table, and not in the VPX_VM table (or the other way around.) Check the ID or ENTITY_ID fields to find the entity number 2900 - that's the one that has the problem.
Hope that helps,
