Already have an account? Now that the file is renamed we are not there yet. What to I do, when I don't know which server that's holds on to the template file? Saved me a lot of headaches Reply Rick DeCaro said August 5, 2013 at 21:35 Anton, Thanks for the info! Source
So i set DRS to manual and vmotioned all the guests to other hosts except the VCenter and VDR machine (which were on this host). This can be obtained by navigating to the URL for the VMware vSphere server without the port defined. In my scenario I cloned from Template in a ESX 4.1 Env. For SSH-access that service must be enabled. https://communities.vmware.com/thread/435023?start=0&tstart=0
This was the best post on the bug. Be very careful here, selecting just remove, and DO NOT dele files from disk.Also, confirm that you selected the right hard disks ! If you do, search the inventory for this template using the search box in the top-right corner of vSphere Client. In the newer versions this note was removed, but it seems to be the UI change only 🙁 I hope VMware will take care about this bug some day… Regards, Anton.
My recipe is a bit more dirty, but allows you to preserve your changes in the VM and fully recover the template - even without the backups. if im delete the Extra vDisk at VDR, i there restart needed or not at the VDR Appliance or the VMs that the vDisk Locked. thanks a lot man… safe my trouble 🙂 Reply Anton Khitrenovich said August 29, 2012 at 12:49 Enjoy 🙂 Reply google.com/accounts/o8… said September 6, 2012 at 10:22 Hi!

I dont actually see any -flat or -original files. 2. Unable To Access File Ds ///vmfs/volumes In the image below you see the files listing of a template, created with the ls -l command. If that is the case first try to find the template on the right datastore. https://groups.google.com/d/topic/pysphere/xIEJu5Ty6eE ANNULER Supporto Citrix Traduzione automatica Questo articolo Ã¨ stato tradotto da un sistema di traduzione automatica e non Ã¨ stata valutata da persone.
the cloned VM took the Template vmdk (because I may have experimentally changed some settings) All i did was power off the offending VM, gave it its original disk back and You could either browser to the .vmx file from the vSphere Web Client to add it to the inventory or do in from the command line now that you are there anyway. Then, go to the Summary tab. I didn't even think to look there until I found your post.
Well, how do you recover from this situation? https://support.citrix.com/article/CTX202551 Your lovely template is now gone, since the disk that belonged to the template is now owned by the running virtual machine - with new name, settings and maybe even software!

If you compare the anatomy of a virtual machine to that of a template in the file system you will find that the only difference is that a virtual machine has this contact form Thanks for taking the time to document this issue. :)--NicoleReplyDeleteFrederic21 May 2010 at 07:05Yeahhhhhhhhhh!!!

The new VM (say, "MyVM") will be created successfully, but the next time you'll go through the deployment process it will fail with a strange message: "Unable to access file ‘MyTemplate/MyTemplate.vmdk' you saved the day ReplyDeleteAdd commentLoad more...

Ended a LOT of frustration this morning. The following error message is displayed:"Unable to access the virtual machine configuration: Unable to access file [Test_LUN] __Test01/__Test01.vmtx" Solution Mount shared storage for this host or remove this host from the thank you very much! We have removed the template from the inventory and this virtual machine now will not automatically show up in the inventory.
Presuming that your source VM is named "CHEFUBUNTU1204", can you perform a state command on it to ensure the API can find your VM to begin with? Still says the file is locked. But it still had the file in use after shutting down the VMware Data Recovery machine. Was able to fix this problem by doing the following: Made sure the folder containing the templates was available to every host under the vCenter server.
Renaming a file is actually done by moving it from the original location (file) to the new location (same file, new name) with the mv command. After the reboot. If it is my fault, do you have any idea how I might avoid this configuration problem in the future? This guide is ace :0)ReplyDeletekevin24 May 2011 at 21:02hey..
