    error when I moved vmdk (hard disk)

    mierdatuti Novice

      Hi,

      I moved a vmdk to other folder. I'm tring to remove hard dist that point to older path and generate the new path

      And now when I try to run my virtual machine it says:

      "The capacity of the parent virtual disk and the capacity of the child disk are different"

      I'm trying to do rollback of my changes but always get the same error.

      Is possible to fix it?

      Thanks and sorry for my English!

          This sounds as if the virtual disk has active snapshots, and the parent has been resized!?

          Please provides some more details to fully understand what's going on. What would be helpful is a complete list of files, i.e. the output of dir *.* or ls -lisa (for Linux). If the error message shows up in the VM's vmware.log file, please attach this file to a reply post too.

            Thanks,

            I can't remember what I do to obtain these error:

            The vmware image has some snapshots.

            The log

              There are files referenced in the log file which do not show up in the list. Please ensure that you post the complete file list.

              In addition to the file list, please compress/zip the vmware.log, the VM's .vmx file as well as all the .vmdk descriptor files (the small text files without "...-s00X.vmdk" in their file names. Once done use the Attach link at the bottom of the edit box to attach the .zip file.

                  This is kind of tricky, because the VM has two virtual disks with the same base name "SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 64-bit.vmdk", which must have been located in separate folders. Do you still have the other "SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 64-bit.vmdk" along with its s001.vmdk - s014.vmdk files? If so, we should be able to properly chain the .vmdk files again.

                    I will have to sign off now for today. Anyway, in case you can find the mentioned parent virtual disk, then you'll have to edit the "SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 64-bit-000001.vmdk" file, adding the absolute path to the parentFileNameHint entry, e.g.

                    <<< - parentFileNameHint="SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 64-bit.vmdk"

                    >>> - parentFileNameHint="E:\Path-to-vmdk\SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 64-bit.vmdk"
