I shut down a vm so that I could export OVF.
My plan was to export it from our onsite vcentre to our offsite vcentre so that we have a backup in place.
However, once I had finished exporting the OVF, I spun the onsite vm backup and it's saying this
PXE-E53: No boot filename received
PXE-M0F: Exiting Intel PXE ROM
Operating System not found.
I'm really unsure what to do, i've never had an issue with this vm. I'm currently importing the OVF to the offsite vcentre so i'm hoping it will spin up there.
Any ideas what has gone wrong? I've found these in the log files if it helps.
Cannot open file "/usr/lib/vmware/config": No such file or directory.
DictionaryLoad: Cannot open file "//.vmware/config": No such file or directory
ConfigDB: Failed to load ~/.vmware/config
EDIT: I've just gone into DHCP and reserved it's mac address to give it an IP address. (the one it was using before I shut it down), as it seems like its problem is that it cannot connect to the network to find the hard drives to boot up from.......thats my take on it anyway. So i've done this and now i'm getting this message (though the server its on has its own built in scsi storage, so who knows...)
