did you run it as "root" account?

If not, then you just remove those files that user account can removed. So your ESXi still ok.
Otherwise, you need to restore from backup/snapshot or restall if no backup.

Contact VMware for suggestion.

Unfortunately not.

I would suggest re-installiing from a backup.

Have you deleted your vmfs volumes and virtual machines?

Free recovery tool for Microsoft Active Directory

Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Active Directory provides fast and reliable object-level recovery for Active Directory from a single-pass, agentless backup or storage snapshot — without the need to restore an entire virtual machine or use third-party tools.

If you have no backup, Turn off the server., and if you are desperate to recovery your data, I would contact Kroll Ontrack Data Recovery.

They are expensive

otherwise just re-install ESXi 4.0.
