vMotion 5.1 Fails at 14% "CPU min outside valid range"

I am trying to vmotion at large VM that has a 16GHZ CPU reservation and 32GB of memory. The VM was deployed from a OVA orginally. When I try to vMotion it to another host which has nothing running on it and more than enough resources I get the following error in the logs..."CPU min outside valid range." When I set the reservation to 0 and limit to 0 or unlimit the logs show the same error and reservation limts of 16GHZ. It is acting like the reservation is being pulled from somewhere else.

No resourse pools are in use
The VM is enable as a vAPPS yet not in a vAPP object. Again it was setup from a OVA

Thoughts or suggestions

Thanks I found this article as well and so far all of the suggested fixes require powering down the VM which is very hard to do right now since it is a production VM. My questions is why is this happening. You can change a reservation on the fly why not now.

I see the VM is referencing a parent resource pool yet there is no resource pool in place. I believe is is something for the OVA import.. Like I said the VM is marked as a vApp yet to vAPP object is inplace

I was able to move the VM after if was powered down. and disabling DRS.

The destiniation host now has the following message displayed: "Unable to apply DRS resource settings on host. Availbe CPU resources in the parent resource pool are insufficient." This is not true since there are no resource pools in use and the destinatio host has tons of free CPU and memory resources...

Again this VM has a 16000MHZ reserveration and 32GB of memory

Live vmotion problems are caused by clock differences between machines and network misconfigurations.
