How to check vm is registered on which host

Hi all,

I have a vm (abcd) in a datastore (1). I am unable to find the vm (abcd) on the Virtual Center.

Which I right the vmx file from the datastore dialogue box the option for register vm is greyed out.

The Datastore (1) is mapped to 24 hosts in a cluster.

How can I check to host the VM is registered. Any command ?

thanks

Hi,

you could use powershell with the command

get-vmhost -vm machine_name

Or also search the inventory with your vsphere client or web client.

Open the .VMX file for this VM and look for the displayName value. It probably doesn't match the directory name.
