The New virtual machine wizard allows you to select one or more virtual machines that you would like to register.

Use the datastore browser to select either a datastore, a directory, or a .vmx file to add to the list of virtual machines that you register. Selecting a datastore or directory searches for all .vmx files in that location. You can browse more than once to append virtual machines to the list.


  1. Right-click Host in the VMware Host Client inventory and select Create/Register VM.
    The New virtual machine wizard opens.
  2. Select Register an existing virtual machine and click Next.
