Do the two vmdk-files have the same name? Then this is probably related to a known issue with snapshots. See this thread: http://www.vmware.com/community/thread.jspa?threadID=77245

I'm not sure whether this is fixed in ESX 3.0.2 (If you have not updated already then give it a try). Otherwise use the workaround posted in the above thread (rename one of the vmdk-files).

Hi,

we are using 3.02 ESX, the files have the same name, but this is not the problem, because the snapshot ist now working fine with 3.02; this problem is solved!

The problem is the disappearence in the virtual center 2.02!
