I have VCenter 4.1 update 1 and cluster of ESXi servers also on 4.1 update 1.
I have a VM which has two HDD's. Each on differenct LUN's.
When I shutdown the vm and clone it, the cloned vm has both of the vmdk files in the same LUN.
Can anyone please help. thanks
What do you mean "different LUN"?
Maybe different datastores? One vmdk is on one datastore and the second is on another?
In this case after cloning you must use migrate / storage /advanced and chose another datastore for the second vmdk.
Pardon me, yes I did mean to say different datastores. I have tried to migrate the second vmdk but that does not work.
I shutdown the cloned vm, then go to datastore > move. Then I move it to the other datastore where I want the vmdk file to be and that works but when I try to start the vm, I get an error can't remember the error
I am certain there is no snapshots. I tried something strange and it worked. During the clone, I went to advance to select where the vmdk files are to be located and I selected the datastore other than where I wanted it to be on...I know this sounds absurd...but it worked.
so for first vmdk file, I selected datastore 2 and for 2nd vmdk file I selected datastore 1 and then it worked....the files are in correct datastore....
I know it does not make any sense..but it worked for me. Many thanks for your answer
