Do you have any resource allocation set?

Any error messages when you try to move it?

Moves a virtual machine to the location that is specified by the -Destination or the -Datastore parameters. The destination must be a folder, host, cluster, or a resource pool. Moving a virtual machine in a cluster is only possible if the virtual machine is in a resource pool in that cluster. If the virtual machine is outside the cluster, you need to specify a virtual machine host in that cluster as destination.

(VMotion for Powered on...)
When moving virtual machines that are powered on, "VMotion" is used. To specify a server different from the default one, use the -Server parameter.

Elmar,

I have never used "resource pools", and I would like to run ("mv" move command) to change/move folder by SSH service.
