Turn Off Affinity

I have 2 vm's that I migrated from a stand alone 2.5.1 esx server to a 3.0.2 cluster and I can't vmotion them now becuase is seems as though someone set affinity rules on them. Now the problem is that the affinity options are no longer available on 2.x hosts. Is there a way to remove affinity on a vm say from a command line?

I found the answer here http://communities.vmware.com/message/637880#637880

the issue is when DRS is enabled affinity rules are taken away. So when I migrated teh vm it had affinity rules present. So disableing DRS adn then teh affinity rules on the cpu then re-enableing DRS it worked like a charm. Thanks to the previous posters for this one....
