Hi all,

trying to remove redundant VMs from the 4.1 ESXi cluster but would like to know if there is anyway of identifying the last start-up date for VMs that are currently powered off? This would assist in my recommendation to delete them from disk. I have looked on Google but can't see anything that helps.

In each VM folder there is a

1. VMX file check the date on the VMX file.

2.Also check the vmware.log file which will certainly include details of last start up.
