VMware Taking ownership of this virtual machine failed-虚拟机异常关机后报错

报 Taking ownership of this virtual machine failed 错误.

一次crash可能会造成虚拟机锁死的情况发生,这时点击take ownership 可能会提示如下字眼:

Taking ownership of this virtual machine failed. The virtual machine is in use by an application on your host computer.


This Virtual Machine Appears To Be In Use…
When I clicked on the lock button (which had replaced VMWare Fusion’s normal “play” button), I got an error message indicating “The virtual machine appears to be in use”:

Seeing as how I was not using the VM (…at least to the best of my knowledge), I clicked on “Take Ownership”, and got an error message that said “Taking ownership of this virtual machine failed”:

What to do? I started googling for the error messages to see if I could find a resource or VMWare support document that described how to troubleshoot them, but to my surprise it took me awhile and some digging to find something. Luckily, which in essence recommended removing VMWare’s lock files on the virtual machine.
