RetrieveStorageInfo request is ignored because the VM is in an invalid state: bad config = false could be produced as a possible error when the VMX file is invalid. During different activities that the ESX system is doing and during this activity the ISCSI disks are lost or something get in the way where a snaphot or some other process gets funked up. Can leave items in your VMX file that are invalid. When you recover from a loss you may find a system in a “Unknown” state.

Look throught your VMX file for odd spaces or items that may have invalid data in it.

Then re-attach the VM and see if it will showup correctly in your Vcenter server.
