Try to use Vmware converter to convert a physical machine to a VM hosting in a VMware host. If the VMware host is managed by vCenter, it doesn't allow me to save the guest to a VM host. It works only when I remove the VMware host from the vCenter. Any idea ?

If you are using VCenter then I've found that for most (maybe all) operations you supply the VCenter server as the host. You can then select the physical host managed by VCenter. There is no need to remove the managed host from VCenter.
