[ PCA / OVM ] After a failed Virtual Disk Migration, a Virtual Machine is Unable to Start
Last updated on APRIL 08, 2018
Applies to:Private Cloud Appliance - Version 1.0.1 and later
Oracle VM - Version 3.0.1 and later
On Oracle VM and Oracle Private Cloud Appliance, when attempting to move a virtual disk from one repository to another, the move operation can fail e.g. due to not enough disk space on the destination repository, or simply be cancelled.
When attempting to boot the virtual machine after this virtual disk move operation, it fails.
Checking the repository on the disk, the newly created disk is incomplete, and reviewing the virtual machine configuration, the vm.cfg points to this new and incomplete disk image.
