Moving Linked Clones

You can move a linked clone as you would an ordinary Workstation 5 virtual machine. However, if you move a linked clone (or if you move its parent virtual machine), make certain the clone can access the parent virtual machine, for example using a shared directory or networked file server.

When you power on a linked clone that has been moved, be prepared to update the file system path to the parent virtual machine location.

Caution: You cannot power on a linked clone if Workstation cannot locate the original virtual machine.
