Powering on the virtual machine fails with the error: The file specified is not a virtual diskPosted: December 19, 2011
It happens to when I have migrated the Virtual Machine from One network to another. I followed the procedure as mentioned in the link listed below
This issue occurs when the .vmdk descriptor file is corrupt or missing. I my case it was corrupt.
Follow the Resolution heading in above said link. The step by step procedure is given in the link below
In step 3 Instead of scsi1.virtualDev = “lsilogic”
My Virtual server show me scsi1.virtualDev = “lsilogic1068”
So the corresponding command ( vmkfstools -c 4294967296 -a lsilogic -d thin temp.vmdk ) does not work for me. But i had replaced the lsilogic1068 with lsilogic in command and it works fine. Rest is same and i followed step by step
It works awesome!
