Error with SVMotion

I am relocating the VMs to another host using some shared storage. (VM is on local storage now) All the other VM's on this host are moving fine except this one. All the files for the VM are in one spot. No Snap Shots are on this machine. With this error I am attempting to move the VM to the shared storage only.

VM is Windows 2008

Relocate virtual machine computername A general system error occurred: Configuration information is inaccessible.

Well I moved it powered off and it boot up just fine. I will check later to see if it still has the same issues now that it is on a different host.

What virtual machine version is the VM?

Check the VMWARE.log in the VM folder, for information as to why it did not move.

Nothing. all the other VM's went fine. This VM was converted from a Physical machine but one of the others was too.

I hate to shut it down to move it.

Any other information showing in vCenter taks & events? or you can check the log files var/log/vmware/hostd.log and var/log/vmkernel for any errors.

Since it is showing error reading configuration information and if there is really a problem with configuration file then  i think it might fail to power up after shutdown.

I shut it down and then power it back up just fine.

Well I was hoping for a quick fix I have to do maintenance on the host I will shut that server down to move. Lets see how that goes.
