vSphere 5.1i virtual machine – wanna move it,its powered off and can’t – what gives?

Recently had an issue where i couldn’t migrate a powered off VM from one datastore to the other – the migrate option was grayed out (yep i could a scp but i was feeling lazy :)) – thing that tickled me was cloning the VM WOULD then provide an option to migrate the CLONED VM but not the original – turned out it the original VM wasnt happy with its registration in vCenter and removing/re-adding into the inventory fixed it – nice and easy does it 🙂
