After losing power the night before last we have been having problems with our ESXi server.  Most have been resolved, but our biggest issue is that the VMs that are stored on an NFS share will not start.  The share is connected in VSphere and we can brows the folders that they are contained in but the .vmx files display a generic icon and the option to add them to inventory is grayed out.  No settings have changed so I don't know where to look to sort this out.
