Converting linux machine error with private key


I have to convert "Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES release 4" to vmware, then I got private key using command ssh-keygen -t rsa via putty. Also I convertet to .pem file

Then I tried to convert it with that pem key with vCenter Converter standalone but it gives error with:

Authentication error. Incorrect user name, password, or client private key. This operation also requires that the source machine's SSH daemon configuration allows remote root login.

I am new to linux. Please help me guys
