vCLS an error occurred: failed to lock the file

Hello

I just upgraded to vCenter 7.0u1a yesterday.

One of the newly created vCLS VMs fails to start with this message:

An error occurred while opening configuration file "/vmfs/volumes/...../vCLS(1)/vCLS(1).vmx": Failed to lock the file.
Failed to start the virtual machine (error -18).
Cannot open the configuration file /vmfs/volumes/...../vCLS(1)/vCLS(1).vmx.

 

Have anyone encountered this and found a solution?

 

Regards,

Soren

Hello again

 

I think I have located the problem.

The vCenter(?) has placed the vCLS on a datastore that should'nt be used.

How can I move these files? I have no option to "force power off" the vCLS, that just keeps on trying to boot.. and fails.

 

PS.: we only have "VMware vCenter Server Essentials" license, so no "Storage migration"...
