Cloning SCO DB fails mounting a VMware datastore already mounted on the Snapshot

When trying to clone an Oracle database that uses LVM on top of VMDKs inside a Linux VMware VM, a failure occurs in mounting the backup:
Failed to Mount/Attach Disk:- Mounting a VMFS Datastore failed!
Note: only mounting the backup appears to work fine, it's the cloning that fails.
