Copy of cold VM - old snapshot back?

Hi all

I have the problem that after a cold copy a virtual machine to a new hard drive for the computer virtual, is a former State.

Here are the details.

I powered my vm´s and my esx

Installed a new hard drive in my nas

powered by the esxi host and added the new hard disk as a data store

I copied a virtual machine of the old data store to the new, this copy job has been done at the level of the bone, my nfs server.

changed the vm settings, remove 1) old hdd 2) added the hard drive from the new data store

powered on virtual machine

After I checked if everything works, I realized that my vm has old data mybe a year I m lack dns zones which where set up there or more than 12 months.

can anyone tell me my mistake? and how do I get my old data back?

I don't remember that I did for this virtual machine snapshots.



I guess this is the part of the vmx file that I need to change, right?

scsi0:0. FileName = ' / vmfs/volumes/0d1d8431-87d719b0/Suse11.1/Suse11.1.vmdk '.

Yes. Assuming that it is the entry that you got to choose the vmdk in the user interface, you need to only replace the vmdk with Suse11.1 - 000002.vmdk

  • How can I get my old firefox back?

    I don't like this new blue one and has not asked for it, this is all of a sudden. In addition, it has a really strange behavior. For example, just now I have 5 tabs open firefox. The first is a question on your forum. When I clicked on the link "ask a question" at the top of the page, it opens the next page in a new tab. And when I clicked on the find on this page button, it opens another tab again. This tab was asked what product I want support with and open another tab with the next page. And yet 10 minutes ago it worked fine. He retains it, doing suddenly change his mind about how he opens new pages.
    In addition, I can be through a page using the scroll on my mouse wheel, then suddenly it stops scrolling and starts to do the top page or less instead. Why he keep changing his mind on what he does?
    Really don't like this new browser and would appreciate that I could get my old one back that worked perfectly well and really no need to upgrade.

    It is possible that some of the keys to the State and possible other keys have the bad state and consider Firefox as always in a hurry.

    Try pressing all the keys (shift, Ctrl, Alt) state several times to see if that helps to recover from this.
    Is it didn't help and then close and restart Firefox or restart the computer.

  • Can not take new snapshot or manage old snapshots VMware Workstation 6.5.1

    I had a stable system of VMware Workstation 6.0 for a long time. I upgraded to 6.5.1 several months ago and it has not been stable. The last symptom is that I can't manage existing snapshots or create new images. The log file of the user interface indicates there is a fault of locking a file. I've gone through the other suggestions of the VMware community, but these have not helped.


    The host is Windows XP SP3 + updates

    Guest is Windows XP SP3 + updates

    VMware Workstation 6.5.1 build 126130

    Symptoms leading to the situation:

    Turn comments off

    VM > overview > Snapshot Manager

    Take a snapshot

    Delete one before (old snapshot)

    Wait a while, the bar of progression and GUI finally indicates success

    Delete an another prior (old snapshot)

    Wait a long time, progress bar freezes, the host OS Task Manager shows process VMware is inadmissible

    Click on the upper right corner, 'X' in the Snapshot Manager to close the application, Windows gives error inadmissible usual cancel or continue, cancel selected

    Windows offers to send symptom information to Microsoft for the diagnosis

    Restart the host operating system

    Start VMware, power reviews (it powers on OK)

    Repeat the mistake (VMware Snapshot Manager crashes on delete old snapshot)

    Restart the host operating system

    Consider the suggestions in the community of VMware Workstation, suggestions are to delete the .lck or .lck files for comments, run chkdsk

    A ran CHKDSK D: /F /R (no problem found)

    Renamed all .lck files in the folder structure customer (renowned specific folders follow below)

    Start VMware powered reviews, case comments (it starts very well)

    Watch VMware directory, confirm that there is no new .lck files/folders

    Use VMware Snapshot Manager, try to take pictures or delete old snapshot - both fail, suspended process, must cancel

  • I want the old search back bar (35 of Firefox).

    There is no such thing as the column in everything: config. It's there, but then I changed to false and restarted Firefox. Nothing has changed. I went back over there and don't know what happened, but the column is not there at all now.

    I tried to restore firefox to default settings, but that did not help.

    There are many parameters in the current version of the CTR, so it is not always easy to find what you are looking for.

    You can find this function in the Options/preferences of CTR.

    • CTR Options > general UI (1)-> old research (experimental)

    As does, right-click > bookmark this page.

  • How can I get my old mozilla back window after the upgrade automatically changed without asking me?

    What I would like is the window of the screen/boot I've had in prior to this new improved window version. The window that appears when you start mozilla.

    Thanks, hopefully I can get it back
