Unable to add VM to inventory


We had a storage issue and some vm's went to inaccessible state. I have removed the vm's from the inventory and later found that the vm files are being locked. Now i am unable to add the vm's to the inventory.

Please let me know if there is any workaround for this

Can you shar the screenshot of error message?

Also is the Storage device working now?

You can kill the running process for VM and then try to register it.
