Jump to solution

I have a VM stored on my datastore but I cannot see it in vcenter.

How can I get VC to see this VM?

Hello and welcome to the forums.

You could use the datastore browser and navigate to the .vmx file. Right-click and choose the "Add to Inventory" option.

Good Luck!

Please explain the scenario..................if ESX is perfectly connected to vcenter, then you can do a browse datastore inside VI client. You should be able to seea ll files associated with the VMs.

I have installed ESXi 4 sucesfully on one computer. In other computer with Windows XP I have installed vSphere Cli, vServer. Well. I attempting to add the host wich it's recently installed, the vSphere Cli found this host server and display me the certificate key, but when I introducing the username (root) and password (correctly) vSphere tell me that's incorrect.

On the ESXi machine I'm typing the username (root) and the password, and I'm logged in without problem.

The range of IP on my network is 10.0.0.x. Can anybody help me?

Thanks.
