Vmware ESXi 5.01 Console HELP!! PLEASE

Hello All,

I ran into a huge problem today. My DR infrastructure went down and i have not connectivity except my Drac cards. I cannot get into my vcenter or my remote desktop server to control the environment. I need to unmount a VM from host A and register it on Host B.

I have done vim-cmd vmsvc/getallvms
vim-vmd vmsvc/power.off VMID

I then unregistered it.

I need help registering it on the Host B.

How do i do that? Its saying that I need to add vmfs/volumes/etc, but i dont know the correct path. Also, my datastore has () in it. When i enter it, it says Object or Item referred to could not be found.

Is there a CMD to view all datastores that the ESXi Box is connected to.

thanks.
