Vmotion Error with one one server

We have 4 servers running in a cluster and we can use vmotion to move VMs except for one server. All esxi servers are running 6.0.0-3825889. We also have another machine running vcenter server 6.0.0-3634788 on windows. Everything is dual stack ipv4 and ipv6. When we try to move a vm to or from one of the servers I am getting the following error.

Network addresses 'XXX.XXX.98.196' and 'XXXX::98:197' are from different address families.

Unable to prepare migration.

Can anyone help?

FWIW - We're also seeing a similar issue. The vMotion network does not have IPv6 address, and the 1 host out of 6 in the cluster appears to be using the management network instead of the vMotion network. No solution has been found yet.
