Do you mean the virtual machine?

What distribution of Linux?
Mohammed KhawajaManager - Infrastructure:  Information TechnologyCommented:
Reinstall VMware as it will retain the VMs (upgrade the existing version)

Have you forget the password of the ESX/ESXi host as the guest Linux VM's?

If its ESXi then re-install is in the only supported option and for ESX you can follow the instruction provided as above.

If Guest Linux VM's please confirm the version
