See the findings.
Despite its humble beginnings, phishing has come a long way since those first crudely constructed emails. Today, phishing sites can appear and disappear in the length of a coffee break, and it takes more than a little know-how to keep your clients secure.

Use the command vmware-cmd and try to shutdown the Virtual Machine gracefully.

Use vCenter Converter Standalone and point the source and destination to the same ESX Host, rename the output VM to a different name other than the source.

This should fix the problem.

thank you everyone. I got on with VMWARE support and the issue was resolved. It was related to CID and Parent ID issue.
I think points can be shared between BijuMenon and brittonv as they pointed to the related information.
