A virtual machine fails to power on with the error: Unsupported and/or invalid disk type (1028943)

Symptoms

Summary

A virtual machine fails to power on with the error: Unsupported and/or invalid disk type

Example

Module DevicePowerOn power on failed. Unable to create virtual SCSI device for scsi0:0, ‘/vmfs/volumes/datastorename/VirtualMachineHome/VirtualMachineDisk.vmdk’ Failed to open disk scsi0:0: Unsupported and/or invalid disk type 7. Did you forget to import the disk first?

Impact

The virtual machine fails to power on.

Resolution

This issue occurs if a virtual machine that is meant for VMware Hosted products such as VMware Workstation, VMware Player or VMware Fusion is powered-on on a VMware ESX host.
The underlying format used to store virtual machines on VMware Hosted products differs from the format used to store virtual machines on VMware ESX hosts.
To import a virtual machine stored on a VMware Hosted product to a VMware ESX host, the virtual machine should first be converted using VMware vCenter Converter. For more information on conversion, see the VMware vCenter Converterdocumentation.
Alternatively, in ESX 5.0 and earlier versions, the virtual machine’s virtual disk files can be imported to a format understandable by VMware ESX using the command:  
vmkfstools -i HostedVirtualDisk ESXVirtualDisk
Note: Connect to the ESX host using an SSH session or ILO/DRAC to use this command.
For importing the virtual disk files in ESX 5.1 hosts, see Powering on a virtual machine after upgrading to ESXi 5.1 fails with the error: File [VMFS volume] VM-name/VM-name.vmdk was not found (2036572).

Note: To access the command line on an ESXi host, you must enable Tech Support Mode. For more information, seeTech Support Mode for Emergency Support (1003677).

For more information on this method, see Migrate VMware Workstation and VMware GSX Server Virtual Machines in theESX Configuration Guide.
