          Is the VM up and running ?

           

          Can you download the vmx file and search for vmdk in it and check if all the disks are attached to it ?

              I dont see any vmdk in the file, hence you are mot seeing the disks in edit settings.

               

              You can readd the disks to the vms from edit setting -- add -->hard disk--> use existing and point to the proper vmdk files.

                Thanks Suresh i have mapped the vmdk file. from other DS.

                 

                Can you provide  more details of this issue? why it is happened?

                 

                 

                Thank you .

                  vmdk will not be removed automatically unless some one does it manually, You may need to check the logs to find when and how the disk was removed if you know the timestamp.

                    vmdk  searched in the datastores  and disk added last two back to VM and now it is disappears from the VM.

                     

                    With results the backup of the server failed.

                      same vmdk file is residing the in the same datastore and it is in the VM folder it self.
