Uploading VMs from either Workstation 9, 10 or vSphere Client fails

Using VMware Workstation 9 and 10 uploading virtual machines to my evaluation ESXi 5.5 system is failing with the following error message:

Upload Failed: The operation is not supported on the object.

As an alternative, I converted a VM to an OVF and tried using vSphere to .Deploy OVF Template with the following message:

Failed to deploy OVF package:  The operation is not supported on the object

How can I find out what is causing the upload to fail for most of my VMs? Of the 10 VMs I tried to upload I was only able to get 2 of them onto the ESXi server.
