You can unregister a virtual machine if you want to keep it on the datastore, but you no longer want the VMware Host Client inventory to display the virtual machine.

Before you begin

Power off the virtual machine.

Procedure

  1. Click Virtual Machines in the VMware Host Client inventory.
  2. Right-click the virtual machine from the list and select Unregister.
  3. To confirm that you want to remove the virtual machine from the inventory, click Yes.

Results

The host removes the virtual machine from the inventory and no longer tracks its condition.
