It worked perfect for 1 VM but not for the other, on the one it didnt work on it said not found but you can see it and content on the datastore.

Remove from the Inventory.

1. Browse the datastore on the working host.

2. Browse the VM Folder.

3. Right Click the VMX file, and Click Register with Inventory.

4. Power on the VMs.
