I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Yes, drag and drop them?

But there are no processes or tasks running on them ?

e.g. backup ?

Are you viewing via vCenter Server view ?

and you cannot drag and drop them to another folder....

I assume you have folders you have created in VMs and Template view?

what folder were they in, and why have they moved!

Yes, and it puts them in Discovered!

you have to create a folder structure, if you are going to use VM and Template View!

Are you creating VMs via vCenter, you should be!

That's why they are appearing as Discovered.

If you create VMs directly on the servers, this will happen.

If using vCenter, connect to it, and create them.
