How can i search for vmx files on all datastores in vsphere 5.5. I accidently removed a VM from inventory and have searched through all the datastores so I can add back into the inventory, but cannot find any matching vmx files. The server name may have been renamed after it was created so the vmx file may be under a different name. Is there a way for my to search for vmx files on all the datastores. I will try to add them in one at a time and see if I can get the server I want.

Thanks in advance for your time and assistance.
