You might need to repair the virtual disk of a local desktop.

You see an error message when you try to connect to your local desktop. For example:

Cannot open the disk 'C:\Documents and Settings\jo\Local Settings\Application Data\View\Local Desktops\Win7_32b_Local_Mode\52411f5e05b854ca-b5c54521f6010b22-scsi00-000002.vmdk' or one of the snapshot disks it depends on.

Reason: The specified disk needs repair.

The problem can occur if you disconnect or power off the client computer while the virtual machine image is being updated.

1

Start View Client from the command line specifying the -repairLocalDesktops option.

For example:

wswc -desktopName lmdt01 -userName jo -domainName MYDOM -repairLocalDesktops

The repair process takes several minutes.

2

If the repair process fails, roll back the local session and check out a new local desktop.
