Rebuilding the Virtual Machine's VMX File

Setup
  • VMware vCenter 5.1
  • ESXi 5.1 GA build (799733)
  • SRM 5.0


Issue
  • At the time of Test Failover VM unable to Power ON due to VMX file went missing or has lost its configuration.
  • Post Analysis we found it could be because of intermittent network connection as we were using NFS data stores


Resolution/WorkAround


Observations
  • For the first time we need to create a script file by copy pasting  the script
  • Once the script is executed it recreates the vmx file however we need to re-add it to inventory and it may also be possible that we have to map port group again
