Nightware, after a reboot from an unexpected power failure of one of our IBM Server (with only local storage). All the VMs in the inventory are showing "Unknown" and with bracket "Inaccessible". Additionally there are some flat.vmdk are now missing from the datastore browser.
Removed all the unknown VMs from inventory and would like to re-add the one that still contain the flat vmdk however the "Add to Inventory" button is greyed out.
Logged in via SSH, checked the file and it is locked by mode 2 (powered-on vm). And some folder contains VM shows error "no such file or directory" of the flat.vmdk when using "ls -a" command.
Snapshot backup is running at night and so some of the VMs might be in the middle of creating snapshot... etc too.
Ticket submitted to VMware but would like to seek for quicker response from here how can we unlock the file and 'recover' the corrupted / missing flat.vmdk.
