Lost Templates moving to new VirtualCenter Server

Jump to solution

I just moved my ESX servers from one VirtualCenter server to another (same version) - The VMs moved with the servers no problem - but I lost my Templates. They are still on the shared storage - how do I get them back into VC?

Thanks!

Browse to the directory on the atastore where the template resides. There's a file there called "template_name.vmtx". Right click on that one, add to inventory. If you need to see it in the VC inventory you have to switch the view to Virtual Machines and Templates from the inventory button.
