If you remove a virtual machine from a datastore but you do not delete the virtual machine from the host that you are managing, you can register the virtual machine on the datastore.

Procedure

  1. In the Datastore browser dialog box, browse to and select the virtual machine configuration file, filename.vmx, and click Select.
  2. (Optional) : On the Select VMs for registration page, select another virtual machine to register if you want to register more than one virtual machine simultaneously.
  3. Click Next.
