ESXi VM Created with Workstation 9 Won't Replicate Via Veeam

I replicate my VMs from one ESXi 5 host to another via Veeam 6.5 Backup & Replication.  I recently created a Win7 VM on the ESXi server by connecting to it from vmWare Workstation 9.  The VM functions fine, but it will not replicate.  The Veeam log gives: "Error: Requested value 'seSparse' was not found." for the VM in question.  All the other VMs continiue to replicate properly.

I have tried:
1. Cloning the VM.  No go.
2. Creating a new VM and just attaching the .vmdk from the VM in question, but it will not let me select the .vmdk from that VM.  (The .vmdk files from any other VM show up, but not the one I need.)
3. Checked the dbo.hosts table for duplicate entries.  Everything looks fine.


Here is a partial output of the Veeam job log:

Not actually sure what the problem was, but doing a V2V conversion (on the same ESXi server) fixed it.  Thanks!
