VMware: Unable “Add to Invetory” option is greyed out

Today I got some trouble with my Exchange production VM, my VMware Data Recovery 1.2 created many snapshots.. and removed the VM from the vCenter inventory… ok not a big issue, but on the datastore I can’t Add it to the inventory again, the option “Add to Inventory” is greyed out.

Solution:

On the console I added the VM again in vCenter with the vmware-cmd option:

vmware-cmd –s register servername.vmx

vmware-cmd -l

 

It’s re-added in vCenter again:image

Now it’s time to delete some snapshots… pffff
