    Posted Jan 01, 2014 01:05 PM

    Hi All,

    I cannot do a storage vMotion of an Powered ON VM to different Datastore, it is reporting error (VMware Tools installation is in progress on this Virtual Machine. Virtual DVD/CDROM devices can't be edited or removed while tools is being installed).

    The problem is that either i cannot reboot nor shutdown this VM it is very critical server, any input to remove the error....How abt editing the vmx file and removing the CD-ROM line over there will it help?

    Regards,

    Ajay
