Vmware issue - VM not showing up in Vcentre

Hi All,

I am having issues with a vmware virtual machine, when I log into the host the vm shows and its running, however the vm is not in the vcenter. The host is connected to the vcenter and this is viewable.

Thank you in advance,

Can you screenshot the Inventory of vCenter Server, and also screenshot the datastore containing the VM Folder and it's contents.
IS the VM accessible on the network?  Does it show up it you "search" for it in vCEnter... I am wonder if it has to do with the view you are using
