Virtual Server Undo Disks - I am never going to use you again (Can't Merge Disks - Parent Disk is a part of a Saved State)条评论
在把 Virtual Server 2005 的虚拟机迁过去 Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V 以后,原来有些虚拟机开了 undo disk 的,发现在 Hyper-V 中没有合并选项,于是又重新安装了 Virtual Server 2005 SP1, 但是合并的时候失败,出错提示如下:
“Virtual Server was unable to commit the changes made during the current session of “[VPC NAME]“. The cause of this problem is that the parent virtual hard disk is a part of a saved state. Your changes will be kept for the next time you start this virtual machine.”
If you search google for this, you come up with almost nothing. But there’s a critical post right here about it. It spells out exactly what you need to do, but foolishly I ignored it and kept looking for a better solution, since I didn’t understand the concept of “inspecting” a virtual disk.
The basic steps are:
- Rename the undo disks to *.vhd. This turns them into a virtual drive in the eyes of Virtual Server.
- Click on the Inspect option in the Virtual Disk section of Virtual Server. There should be an option to then merge the disk.
- Select a new disk to merge into. If you try merging into the original parent, Virtual Server will just give you the above error again.
- Take your newly merged virtual disk and replace it in the virtual machine (i.e. replace the parent that was couldn’t be merged to before).
