симптомы
После добавления виртуального диска в Windows 2008 и Windows 2008 R2, вы не можете сделать диск онлайн
Windows 2008 и Windows, виртуальная машина 2008 R2 настраивается с виртуальной аппаратной версии 7
Вы видите эту ошибку в пределах Windows, в разделе Управление дисками:

Диск отсутствует из-за политики, установленной администратором

Чтобы решить эту проблему:
Откройте командную строку внутри виртуальной машины.
Для запуска утилиты Diskpart выполните команду:

diskpart.exe

To display the SAN policy, run the command:

diskpart> san

SAN Policy: Offline Shared

Change the SAN policy to be online with the command:

diskpart> san policy=OnlineAll

Diskpart successfully changed the SAN policy for the current operating system.

To get a summary information about each disk, run the command:

diskpart>list disk

Disk Status Size Free Dyn Gpt
--------------- ------------------ ----------- ----------

Disk 0 Online 40 GB 0 B
*Disk 1 Offline 60 GB 1024 KB

Select Disk 1 (currently offline disk) with the command:

diskpart>select disk 1

Disk 1 is now the selected disk

Note: From this point, all diskpart commands apply to this disk.

Clear the read-only attribute for the Disk 1 with the command:

diskpart>attributes disk clear readonly

disk attributes cleared successfully

To check that the read-only attribute has been cleared, run the command:

diskpart>attributes disk

current read-only state: no
boot disk: no
pagefile disk: no
hibernation file disk: no
crashdump disk: no
clustered disk: no

Bring Disk 1 online with the command:
