    Notice in the screenshot above how the Unregister or Delete menu options are not available. Don't use maintenance mode or it will try to migrate that vm and then hang. You need to hear this. After the remedy, we need to remove the VM from inventory and r-register or reload it. To do it, delete the section containing the data of the problem VM from the vmInventory. So I confirmed the VM's directory still exists, files are present in there, vmx, log files etc.

    The Invalid Status issue is usually caused after attempting to delete a VM, manually removing VM files after a vMotion, a problem with the VMFS storage or.As most System Administrators discover in these situations - they are pretty much stuck and the only way to remove the VMnow marked as ' Invalid 'is to delete it as the Unregister option cannot be selected when right clicking on top of the VM:.
