"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.

Are they are tasks in progress on the VMs, like vMotion, Storage vMotion ?

Time to start vCenter Server, and then Network Management Agents on Host

the above will not affect running VMs.

if you are sure, these are just 1 VM, Remove from Inventory.

also it can help if you logon direct to ESXi hosts, and remove from Inventory there.
