I added a third vm host to the cluster which has HA and DRS. Since I did this, vm keeps trying to migrate vm's to the new host but they keeping getting to the 10% point and then fail with the error The operation is not allowed in the current state...
Any idea what I need to do to resolve this?

Firstly, for test purposes.

Perform a vMotion on the VM in question which is causing the issue to the new host.

Does it pass or fail?

Can you manually migrate any other VMs to this new host?

Does vMotion work to this new host?

Do you have correct licensing?

Do you have correct shared storage setup? with correct datastore names?

Do you have vMotion enabled?

Yes I have all the following you mentioned and what's weird is all of a sudden now it is able to migrate vm's over to it without any issues.
I do have a 60 day eval license on it but I did not think that would make a difference..

Glitch, it does happen!

test, test, test, and then when you think you finished testing, test again!
