Phantom alerts on vSphere5 virtual machines

Following a power outage virtual machines that are not running display the alert icon.  There are no triggered alarms listed.

Environment:  EVC cluster of ESXi 5.0.0 hosts with HA and DRS enabled.

Alarm icon on virtual machines

These virtual machines are not running.

Any of the following actions resolve the issue:

* Restarting management agents
* Migrating the VM to a different host
* Removing and then adding the VM from the inventory.

I’ve not been able to find a KB article that covers this, but a Google search makes it clear that this issue has been seen many times.
