Did you already take a look at the VM's vmware.log file to see if this contains any hints?

the only thing that changed in your setup seems to be your storage so concentrate troubleshotting  on that.

it could be a mis configuration on the storage side.

The vmware.log (without the numbers) is the current one. The other ones are backups of the last few log files.

Although I like short answers, this one is a little bit too short Smiley Wink

In this case you may need to provide more details. Please attach the file to your next reply.post.

I'm not sure, but you may try to cleanly shut down the VM rather than to suspend it. If you cannot access the VM/cannot shut it down, you may delete the .vmss file in the VM's folder, which is comparable to a hard reset on a physical system (e.g. pulling the power plug).
