Hello experts, please give me some advices (councils) to solve this error quickly. On having removed the disc of the VM and try to add it again, I go to the error message:

Adding existing IDE disk is not supported at the moment

Add Existing Disk Error

Adding existing IDE disk is not supported at the moment. IDE disk cannot be hot added or there are no free available IDE controller slots.

It may occur if the machine is initially performing on a legacy version of ESX prior to 2.x.

You have to update this value in the VMDK descriptor file to resolve this. Also, you have to ensure the virtual machine doesn't have any snapshots. In the meantime, power off the virtual machine. Try to do it as safe as possible.
