Can I still access the vm even though it's not on?  can't ssh into vm.

What continuum​ is asking for is the directory on the ESXi host where the VM's files are stored.

Enable the SSH service on the ESXi host, and connect to it via ssh, then run cd /vmfs/volumes/<datastore-name>/<vm-name>, and list the files using the command ls -lisa.

update:  Looks like we had a corrupt snapshot, a friend assist who knew a lot more about xvsi.  Turned out there was a bad snapshot that caused the OS from booting up properly. 

We didn't delete the bad snapshot.  Using Edit setting, we removed the hard drive ( not delete), then Add hard drive, but choose "existing hard drive" (original hard drive).  After rebooted the vm was able to boot up but lost any changes that were made before snapshot corruption.

Thanks for the help, I know where to go to look for answers.
