identify last boot up time for a virtual machine on a esxi 4.1 cluster

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.

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.
