NFS file locks

dunno1958

Hello,

I've copied a VM from a NetApp snapshot using ndmpcopy to a new NFS datastore. I've mounted the datastore to ESX an added the VM to the inventoery.

When I try to power on the VM I get the following error message at about 95%:

Unable to access file ,unspecified filename. since it is locked

I've deleted the VMware snap that was instigated by SMVI, but it hasn't made any difference.

Any ideas?

Hi,

Not quite sure whether this may be the reason, but have you got any .lck files in the VM folder? If the answer is yes, try deleting them & see what happens.
