Adding a VMDK FIle to ESX Inventory

I recently "Moved" some VMware folders (with the system down) from one NetApp Lun to another (I needed to move storage around to to reallocate the SANs) now I cannot "create" a new VM from the file.  I can see the vmdk files in the storage area but when I go to create a new VM and browse to that lun and folder the wizard DOES NOT list any of the VMDK files that are present.  Any ideas.

Also, when I went to start the original VMs after moving the folders they would not start as well that is why I tried to recreate them.

Just figured it ou.   Browse to the storage and find the vmx file.  Right click and follow the prompts to add VM to inventory.
