If you have an existing VM that was removed from VirtualCenter and just need to add it back in then follow the below steps:

• Select the ESX server in the VirtualCenter that the VM files are located on

• On the summary tab right-click on the datastore that the VM files are located on and click "Browse Datastore"

• Select the folder that the VM files are located in

• Right-click on the VMX file for the VM and select "Add to Inventory"

• Select a name and location for the VM and click Next

• Select the Host or Cluster for the VM and click Next

• Select a Resource Pool and click Next

• Click Finish and the VM will now appear in VirtualCenter
