    Creating new App Stack template

    Gekken1 Novice

      Hi I need to create some App Stack which need more than the default 20GB of space. This kb indicates it should be easy to create a new custom template of the size I choose. VMware Knowledge Base


      However when I try to power on a vm with the template.vmdk attached I get this error:


      Failed to start the virtual machine.

      Module 'Disk' power on failed.

      Cannot open the disk '/vmfs/volumes/vsan:5233355aa54ecd35-702649431d451a32/0fbe725b-3576-facb-106d-0050568614e7/apps_templates/template.vmdk' or one of the snapshot disks it depends on.

      Disk '/vmfs/volumes/vsan:5233355aa54ecd35-702649431d451a32/0fbe725b-3576-facb-106d-0050568614e7/apps_templates/template.vmdk' cannot be opened for writing. It might be shared with some other VM.


      In this specific case the template.vmdk is located on a vSAN, but had just the same issue in another environment running VMFS on SAN.


      Did also try to stop App Volumes Manager Service.


      In both environment I'm running 2.14.


      Any suggestions?
