    Snapshot revert operation causes QueryChangedDiskAreas to fail with FileFault Exception on CBT enabled VM

    madreawar Lurker



      On ESX server (v5.0) ,I have a VM named "TEST_VM" and it is CBT enabled. Say I had a snapshot on VM already, then I created a another one and query changed disk blocks by calling QueryChangedDiskAreas().
      This worked fine and returned correct blocks.


      After this when I reverted my VM to first snapshot and again tried to call QueryChangedDiskAreas() method.
      It failed with following error:


        dynamicType = <unset>,

        dynamicProperty = (vmodl.DynamicProperty) [],

        msg = 'Error caused by file /vmfs/volumes/52b3937c-82411146-ae96-00101869d820/TEST_VM/TEST_VM-000005.vmdk',

        faultCause = <unset>,

        faultMessage = (vmodl.LocalizableMessage) [],

        file = '/vmfs/volumes/52b3937c-82411146-ae96-00101869d820/TEST_VM/TEST_VM-000005.vmdk'



      How to solve this issue?
