    I have a disk which is being used on another (running) VMWare client and I want this disk to be used by a second VMWare client as well. The aim is to run two virtual servers who can see the one disk. If one virtual server crashes, we want to “flick a switch” on the other server so that it can continue the job of that one which crashed.

    So when I try to add the virtual disk to the new server, I get the error:

    Failed to power on SCSI0:2(/vmfs/volumes/########/cla-int1.vmdk.)
    Failed to add disk ‘/vmfs/volumes/########/cla-int1.vmdk’ to scsi0:2.

    Is this because the virtual disk is already attached and used by, another virtual server?

    VMWare ESX Server 3.0.0
