Hello,
I've removed a VM from the inventory of my ESX server 3.5 some weeks ago.
Now I would like to have it back.
I've re-added it but the snapshot's that I had are not there, and the VM is in the initial state (after creation), instead I need the last status I had after the last snapshot.
How can I fix it?
Thx FP

Did you remove from inventory or delete it from disk ?

If you have removed it from inventory, use the vmware-cmd command to re-register the VM to the ESX Host.

I've re-register from the datastore, but I had the manually edit the .vmdk files because the parentID of a snapshot was wrong.
