    Accepted Solution

    In vCenter client, browse to Datastores view within inventory.
    Locate the datastore with the VM files on it, right-click and click Browse Datastore.
    Locate the .vmx file for the VM you unregistered, right-click and click Add to Inventory

    Assisted Solution

    Actually at the Inventory, right click your VM to remove it(dont remove from disk!)
    At the config tab, click storage, you should be able to see a list of your datastores
    Browse a datastore and locate the vmx file of the VM you want to register, right click to add to Inventory
