Does the VM itself that you are trying to migrate have a firewall solution running on it? Something other than Windows like CheckPoint, Fortinet, PFSense, etc? If so, can you stop that service and see if you can migrate it? While the error message is about vMotion, there are services and situations on the VM that can cause issues. 

Check and see if the vpxa service is running. 

vpxa service is running

Even though you cannot see it, have you tried running " service-control --status vmware-vpx-workflow" to see if it give a response. if it does by chance say it is not running, try starting it or if it is running restart it "service-control vmware-vpx-workflow restart". You may just not be able to see it.

Is vMotion properly configured between the servers?

vmkernel adapters ? IP assignments ? Gateway configuration if needed ?

did you verified the communication between servers on vmotion stack by vmkping ?


If my reply was helpful, I kindly ask you to like it and mark it as a solution
