While trying to create a snapshot on a host I received an error:
# vmware-cmd -l
[gets a listing of hosts and filesystem paths and combine the host that you are getting the error on with the vmware-cmd command:
# vmware-cmd /vmfs/volumes/45j2fdb8-42a8bc40-dd01-0019bbca5388/host.com/host.com.vmx hassnapshot
# ls -la *vmsd
-rw——- 1 root root 477 Sep 19 19:49 host.com.vmsd
# mv host.com.vmsd host.com.vmsd.bak
then issue the snapshot command.
