Additional Troubleshooting Information

2200

Could not find the specified virtual machine checkpoint.

Ensure the specified virtual machine checkpoint exists and try the operation again.

2201

The selected virtual machine will need to be shut down in order to create a new checkpoint.\n\nDo you want to continue?

2202

The selected virtual machine will need to be shut down and restarted in order to create a new checkpoint.\n\nDo you want to continue?

2203

All changes and checkpoints for this virtual machine made after checkpoint %CheckpointName; will be lost after using this checkpoint to restore the virtual machine.\n\nDo you want to continue?

2204

All checkpoints created after the selected checkpoint will also be removed. After being removed, checkpoints cannot be used to restore the virtual machine.\n\nDo you want to continue?

2205

Checkpoint %CheckpointName; will be removed.\n\nDo you want to continue?

2206

Virtual machine %VMName; cannot be used for any checkpoint actions. For checkpoint actions, a virtual machine must be running, stopped, paused or in a saved state.

Ensure that the virtual machine is running, stopped, paused or in a saved state, and then try the command again.

2207

A new checkpoint for virtual machine %VMName; cannot be created because it exceeds the maximum of %Count; checkpoints allowed.

To create a new checkpoint for virtual machine %VMName;, remove an older checkpoint.

2208

The Virtual Machine Manager database %DatabaseName; could not be backed up at %FolderPath;.

Ensure that the specified folder exists, is not a root directory and is accessible to the SQL server.

2209

Failed to recover database %DatabaseName; from location %FileName; to SQL server. The SQL error is:\n%DetailedErrorMessage;

Ensure that the specified file is a valid VMM database backup.

2210

The path %FileName; specified for Virtual Machine Manager database backup file is not valid.

Ensure that the specified path is valid and that the Virtual Machine Manager database backup file exists on that path.

2211

An error has occurred while trying to remove all connections to database %Database Name;.

Ensure that the SQL Server service can be started and that you have permissions to query the SQL Server.

2212

The command is not valid.

Check the specified parameters and try the command again.

2213

There are no virtual hard disks attached to %VMName;.

To create a checkpoint, add a virtual hard disk to the virtual machine, and then try the operation again.

2214

Checkpoint actions on virtual machine %VMName; are unsupported because one or more hard disks are shared with other virtual machines. The shared hard disks are: %ObjectList;.

Ensure that the virtual machine doesn't share any hard disks with other virtual machines.

2215

Virtual Machine Manager must shut down the following virtual machines to create th e new checkpoint: %ObjectList;.\n\nDo you want to continue?

2216

Checkpoint creation on virtual machine %VMName; is unsupported because the virtual machine contains virtual hard disk %FileName;, and the path length of the checkpoint disk for this hard disk will exceed %MaxLimit; characters.

Transfer the virtual machine to a location where the path is shorter, or reduce the length of the virtual hard disk's filename and try the operation again.

2217

Checkpoint actions can be performed only for virtual machines that are on a host. Virtual machine %VMName; is in the library.

Place the virtual machine on a host and then try the operation again.

2218

(Internal error.)

2219

A new checkpoint cannot be created for virtual machine %VMName; because it is atta ched to one or more pass-through disks

Ensure that the virtual machine is not attached to any pass-through d isks and then try the command again.

2220

Checkpoint %CheckpointName; will be restored.\n\nDo you want to continue?

2221

A new checkpoint cannot be created for virtual machine %VMName;. The virtualization software on host %VMHostName; does not allow a new checkpoint to be created for a virtual machine that is paused.

Ensure that the virtual machine is running, stopped, or in a saved st ate and then try the operation again.

2222

A new checkpoint cannot be created for virtual machine %VMName;. The virtualization software on host %VMHostName; does not allow a checkpoint name that exceeds %MaxLength; characters.

Specify a shorter checkpoint name and try the operation again.

2223

A new checkpoint cannot be created for the virtual machine (%VMName;) on the virtu alization host (%VMHostName;) because the virtual machine has one or more virtual hard disks attached to a shared SCSI adapter.

Ensure that virtual machine does not have any virtual hard disks attached to shared SCSI adapters, and then try the operation again.

2400

Unable to resolve the path %SharePath; to a physical path on %ComputerName;.

Ensure you have sufficient permissions on %SharePath; and try the operation again.

2401

The specified path is not a valid share path on %ComputerName;.

Specify a valid share path on %ComputerName; to the virtual machine t o be saved, and then try the operation again.

2402

VMM cannot rename %FileName; because a file or folder with that name already exists.

Specify a different folder name, and then try the operation again.

2403

VMM cannot rename %FileName; because the specified name is not valid.
