I'm working on a VCenter Server version 6.0. When I try to clone any of the Linux VMs the clone fails with "invalid configuration for device '13'" about 78% of the way through the clone. Cloning one of the MSWindows VMs works properly. The machine I have been testing this on has the latest version of VMWare Tools installed. I have also removed all snapshots, but that didn't change anything. I can copy the VM folder to the same or another datastore and get a working VM. I just can't clone them. Can anyone help me understand what is going on?
Are you using a configuration with Distributed Switches?
The error seems very similar to that described in the following article;
I accept that this doesn't mention your version of vSphere, However, the solution might be worth a shot.
Hope this helps
Thanks for the lead. We aren't using distributed switches, but I will still try to disconnect the LAN connection and retry the clone. Maybe it will shed some light on the cause.
