    Hi,
    I would like to store some of my virtual machines on a windows SAMBA share and access them for my mac. I have a very high speed network. However, whenever I try to start the virtual machine, it gives the error: "unable to get geometry of virtual hard drive" etc...

    Is this a known issue? I would really like to access virtual machines over the network, since that will save disk space on the laptop.

    The same problem to me.
    I want to share the VM image from Xsan.
    I have tested via AFP and the same message (uanble to get the geometry...).
    I can't test directly from Xsan because I haven't any Xserve Intel for th time....
    Anyone now if there is the same trouble like via AFP or SMB ?
