Unable to resume suspended VM

Hi,

I see an error 'FILE: FileLockWaitForPossession timeout on '<lock_file>' due to another machine...'  any time I suspend and then attempt to resume a VM.  I have to discard the suspended state because I'm not certain how to correct the error?

If it helps, the VM was successfully moved from another host about a week ago (never had an issue with suspend/resume prior to that).

Thanks!

Your post needs moving to the area for Workstation, I have reported it to the moderators.

@scott28tt  -  thank you

As FYI I've solved this issue by discarding the LCK file present in the directory folder for this VM.  It's possible I suspended the VM (rather than shutting it down completely) before moving to a new host system.
