maybe a permissions issue? also check your vmkernel port to ensure there is checkmark to enable vmotion.

Hi Deepka, Do you have VMotion enabled? Is this something that you have been able to do in the past?

I was thinking along the lines of Troy, with it being a permissions issue.

Do the VM's have RDM's? or use NPIV/VMDirectPath I/O?
