    Fusion 12 Professional: vmrun clone fails

    MagNJ Lurker

      The following command works fine in VMware Fusion 11 Pro but fails in 12 Pro (evaluation copy):

       

      $ vmrun clone /Volumes/Users/user1/Documents/Virtual\ Machines.localized/testvm.vmwarevm/testvm.vmx /Volumes/Users/user1/Documents/Virtual\ Machines.localized/testvm-clone.vmwarevm/testvm.vmx full -snapshot=Snapshot-2020-10-06

      Error: One of the parameters was invalid

       

      $ vmrun listSnapshots /Volumes/Users/user1/Documents/Virtual\ Machines.localized/testvm.vmwarevm/testvm.vmx

      Total snapshots: 1

      Snapshot-2020-10-06

       

      According to vmrun help there seems to be nothing different between 11 Pro and 12 Pro:

       

      clone                    Path to vmx file     Create a copy of the VM

                               Path to destination vmx file

                               full|linked

                               [-snapshot=Snapshot Name]

                               [-cloneName=Name]
