While attempting to delete some old snapshots on a VM that is a clone of another VM, we get this error: "Error deleting:
Cannot perform this operation on a template virtual machine." Are we attempting to do something that is unsupported? We have seen VM's crash because they ran out of disc on the physical drive on which they are stored, we want to be sure that this won't happen to us.
Can someone help us with the answer here? We feel like we should be able to delete a snapshot even if the VM is a "Template Virtual Machine".
Just in case, open the VMX file and look if there is a line with :
templateVM = "true"
In case you find such a line, shut down your VM and remove this line.
