  • VM Won't Boot up

    Hello Team,

    I'm having issue with one of my vm server.

    When I bootup it gave me an error message "A file was not found" That message popup at 95% boot.
    I still see the hard drive mvdk there.

    How can I bring this mv back to life? I even recreate another vm but try to attache that hard drive there. and it not seeing it.
    When I try copy that vmdk it gave me the error "General fault caused by file. " error.

    Thanks,
    HN

    Would be good to get some more information about the environment but as a guess this may help?

      I had a simular issue with the below post. but when I try to recreate the vm it did not see the hard drive.

      This is what happened.. the vm was running on esx3. i shut it down then I went to es4 and try to add the vm to the inventory. When I try to boot up it complaining file missing. and I went to esx3 and try to boot up it still complaining file missing.

        Can you browse the datastore?

          have a look inside the VMXF file - it will normally point you to all the VMDK files you are supposed to have.

          It sounds like either you have corruption in the file, or a file is missing.

          try using vmkfstools to make a copy of the vmdk
