  • vm error : disks in this virtual machine is already in use by a virtual machine

    Hi Board,

    I recently downloaded a vm image. Wen i run the image i get the following error -:
    Unable to change virtual machine power state: Unable to open file "/home/documents/vm/Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition-0.vmdk":
    One of the disks in this virtual machine is already in use by a virtual machine or by a snapshot..

    I have tried deleting the .vck folder but to no help, it comes up again showing the same error.
    Can somebody help. I need to run this image badly.


    regards

    Are there any .lck file in the folder?

    If so close your Vmware software
    delete the lock files
    restart the software and try again
