Move a VM from dead ESXi host to another host

Move a VM from dead ESXi host to another host

If an ESXi host is dead and you can't access the VMs on it and you need to move a VM to another host while the original host is in disconnected state, SSH to the new host and run the belo command that will re-register the VM on the host and ignore vCenter Server on that.
vim-cmd solo/registervm /vmfs/volumes/datastore_name/VMName/VMName.vmx
