never done this before.  but i need to add a vm to the inventory of a host that is on a completely different Vcenter cluster

We have 2 Vcenter's  

One vcenter is strictly for VDI environment and has only 1 cluster of 2 hosts

the other vcenter is strictly for Production environment and has multiple clusters and hosts.  

the reason why i am doing this is this particular VM in question happens to be the parent image VM for VDI.  and it is currently not being backed up by my VDP hosts in my production environment VCENTER.

so basically i want to add to inventory this VM on one of my hosts in my Production VCENTER.

does that make sense?

anyway can it be done without causing the VM to unregister from the current VDI VCENTER and host it is already on?
