            Bug ID: 231069
           Summary: Official VMware image of FreeBSD 11.2-RELEASE can't be
           Product: Base System
           Version: 11.2-RELEASE
          Hardware: amd64
                OS: Any
            Status: New
          Severity: Affects Some People
          Priority: ---

I've downloaded Vmware image of FreeBSD 11.2-RELEASE of late July, and it
appears that the resulting virtual machine can't be snapshot: creating a
snapshot of this VM results in an immediate shutdown and in a light corruption
of the VM.
Corruption can be reversed by manually editing the config file of the VM.

I'm using: 
VMware ESXi 5.5.0 Update 3 (Build 3248547)
VM is installed on an NFS datastore
This datastore in served by a FreeBSD server (ZFS)

Not sure whether the vmdk available for download is somehow defective or
non-compatible with my setup. It's the first time I'm hit with this kind of

URL of the vmdk:
