I have ESXi with a few virtual machines.
One day, the building lost electric power and this VMWare box was shut down at that time. Since then this computer failed to boot from external USB stick.
So I created a bootable USB flash drive again, loaded ESXi, assigned the same IP address at the console, opened datastore, browse to the VM folder and right click on .vmx file and chose "add to inventory". By doing this, one of VMs came up just fine. But one of them did fail with the message "Unknown (invalid)".
How can I fix this?
