VM shown as Unknown (inaccessible) ESXI 5.0

Issue = Esxi 5.0 Hosting two vm's. One VM shown as Unknown (inaccessible) stored on the local datastore. Although unknown/inaccessible, that vm continues to run w/o issues and is accessible via RDP. On the same host but in shared storage (another host), the other vm looks and runs fine. I saw this post < https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/28436360/vm-shows-unknown-inaccessible-after-iscsi-datastore-power-failure.html > but it did not provide a resolution. I removed the vm from inventory and created another one but it failed to start saying the VMDK file was locked and the vm could not be started. I think i'm going about the wrong way trying to restore a vm that somehow still running but not showing in inventory anywhere. Any help will be much appreciated. Please let me know if you need more information to help me with and/or understand the above issue. Thank you all!
