I have two VMware servers (version 2.0). The primary one is already up and running and in production. It's hosting a printer server and a DHCP server. We have two machines set up. Server 1 is 2008 SP2 32-bit host running two 2008 64-bit guests. Server 2 is a 2008 R2 SP0 64-bit host. I have the datastore folder and share mirrored from Server1 to Server2.
I can add the machine to Inventory, but when I try to run it, I get a message:
msg.uuid.altered:This virtual machine may have been moved or copied. In order to configure certain management and networking features VMware Server needs to know which. Did you move this virtual machine, or did you copy it? If you don't know, answer "I copied it".
The bootup of the machine fails with the message:
"Power On Virtual Machine" failed to complete. If these problems persist, please contact your system administrator.DetailsCannot open the disk 'c:\Datastore\DoaAncPs01\DoaAncPs01-000001.vmdk' or one of the snapshot disks it depends on. Reason: Failed to lock the file.
How do I backup and restore these Vm images?
