I prepared to add virtual machine to host but it response failed to do that due to it hosted to one of hosts.

Two questions:

1. If virtual machine is hosted to host but can't found for inventory list, how to check it out host path by Vsphere or other method?
2. If I found can't hosted from any host, how to remove the VM locked status, ti show VMX file with .vmx~

Even I deleted .VMX~ and locked file and add VM to inventory. Also rejected with same reason for question 1 raised.

How about my question2?
