VM imported to Esxi Server fails to open

Hi,
   I have a VM (Windows 2012 Server)   which  opens good in my VMplayer (Version 9.1) . But when I import it to ESXI Server ( vsphere client 6.0) the import is done successfully. But when I try to open the VM in ESXI, It gives the following error
" Failed to start the virtual machine.Module DevicePowerOn power on failed.
Unable to create virtual SCSI device for scsi0:0, '/vmfs/volumes/599cc609-38480b40-4453-

Hi I have tried with VConverter a couple of times and it is stuck at 1% and is not proceeding from there even after 12 hours ( But I have uploaded other VMs using Vconverter

what is the VM ?

By any chance did the VM have a snapshot in place. The drive listed in the error almost looks like it is reference a snapshot that is not longer present when is was moved.

I had snapshots. But I removed them all and tried VConverter
