We are facing issue with one of our VM on VMware ESXI server. When we are trying to start the VM we are getting .vmx file was not found and i have also tried to create new vm and add existing .vmdk file but not working. I am confused what to do.
It would be nice if someone help me on this issue.
Attaching a screenshot for my VMware ESXI server where I am showing VM on data store volume.
it looks like that somebody deleted necessary files
1. There is no VMX file in the VM's folder.
2. From datastore browser picture I don't see vmdk descriptors. Maybe this is because of very-very old ESXi version.
Can you connect to host with SSH and show 'ls -lah' output from VM's directory?
As well this VM had 3 snapshots (as per cound of delta vmdks). If you try to create a new VM then attach existing virtual disk using the latest vmdk which has 000003 number.
Our VM is not listed in inventory so I am not able to see you VM setting?
We have three delta disk and one flat-file but when I create custom VMX then it says unable to boot and getting error bootmgr missing.
