"Virtual Server was unable to commit the changes made during the current
session of "Server3". The cause of this problem is that the parent virtual
hard disk is a part of a saved state. Your changes will be kept for the next
time you start this virtual machine."

I have a bunch of test VM's on a server and one of them refuses to allow me
to merge the undo disks, while the others work just fine. The problem VM was
created using the same base install (3 machine testing config) as others and
they all work fine, including the 2 others in this test config.

I've searched the .vmc file for a any indication of a Save State and also
tried doing graceful shutdowns of the Guest OS (Win 2k3), but VS R2 seems
convinced that it's still in a Save State even when it's powered off and no
save files exist.

Any thoughts?

You could try:

Find the .VUD file and rename it to .VHD - then inspect this VHD file
and ask to merge it to a new file.
