Cant power off vm because all of the power options are greyed out

I have a vm that is stuck in limbo and we want to delete it but the options for powering it off and such are all greyed out.
How can I delete this vm since we cannot access any of the power options via the vctr?

Okay, you could try a few things..

1. Restart Network Management Agents.

2. Restart vCenter Server Service.

Well all other vms are ok and we can access it is just this one vm. So try what you suggested Andrew?

I've also seen it where you can't do anything in vCenter, but you can successfully kill the VM when using the host console.
