It depends on the server machine which you are using as according to me it must be a old model. In that case after every shutdown you will have to manually add all the vms to the inventory.
Browse the datastore or the storage device and manually add the vms with extensions "*.vmx" to the inventory

I have not used redhat virtual manager. I am using vmware in my dell server where I have to manually browse the datastore where all the vms are stored.

You must have specified some locations to store the vms HDD while creating one. Manually go to the location and give a double click or right click to look for options

Inside the harddisk you will find vm files with extensions .vmx , .vmdk and many others consisting snapshots.

That is what I am saying,

while creating new vms we specifiy storage location where the vm will be saved. Just browse to that location. Like for my oracle virtualbox you can check the snapshot. Similarly you need to check the home directory of all the vms.
