I am having trouble migrating a VM from a datastore. I am trying to decommission this SAN and I have been able to move all other VM's off except one. I am not able to move it powered on on or off. When I try to move it using vcenter I get the attached error. If I use vmkfstools -i to clone it I get a "Function Not Implemented" error and if I try a straight cp copy of the VM I get a "read: Function Not Implemented" error. The VM can be powered on and the OS and Service functions fine.
I have narrowed the problem to one of the two vmdk's the other vmdk cp's and " vmkfstools's" just fine. I am a bit stuck on how to proceded. I am hoping someone out there has had a problem like this and a quick fix. I would rather not rebuild the VM or restore backups to new VM if possible. Any idea's would be a great help. Thanks.
quick enviroment info
Current Datastore: Windows Storage Server.
Datastore to migrate to: Dell Equallogic

datastore: IBM DS6800 - transport Fibre Channel
corrupted 3 VM´s on the same LUN

I can take snapshot, turn off and turn on VM without problem.
Other VM´s on the same LUN does not have problem.

Thank's, but It is not my situation. I have ESXi 5.1 and I can migrate to host.
My problem is Storage migration and I think problem is with file vmdk.
