I am unable to power on a VM on a production environment and the error received is:
 "No Host is compatible with the virtual Machine"

I migrated the  VM to another  Host in the cluster and then received the following error:
An error was received from the ESX host while powering on VM host xxxx.

We are using vSphere 5.1.

Event Details:  
Type ID: Info
Target Object Type: ClusterComputeResource
DataCenter Object Type: Datacenter
Host Object Type: HostSytem
Host Build: 838463
VM Object Type: Virtual Machine
ChainID: 3341944

Any idea how to fix this please.
