I'll preface this with the obvious: I am dumb.
I am currently working from home on some scheduled maintenance on a production server running on a vm -- a bitnami redmine/svn stack to be specific.
I was taking a backup of the SVN repository when the size of my virtual disk maxed out (our repository is too big, that's the maintenance). I checked in VSphere and my VM was powered off with a message similar to `There is no space for vmname-00001.vmdk. Try clearing some files on the data store and try again.
Now, I don't know enough about VMs but I assumed that this meant my VM was using
vmname-000001.vmdk. I browsed into the datastore and was about to delete the related
-0000n.vmdk files when I decided "I don't know enough about VMs, I probably shouldn't do that."... And that's when TeamViewer hiccuped and the files got deleted anyway. Yay me.
So now my VM wont start because it is missing those other
-00000n.vmdk files. The error I get is
The System cannot find the file specified.
Can I somehow get the VM running using only that last remaining
-000001.vmdk file? The timestamp on the
-000001.vmdk file was from yesterday and the other
-00000n.vmdk files were timestamped last year if it's relevant.
