Welcome to StarWind Forum.
Could you check if the VM has any checkpoints/snapshots on it? Try converting it to a local file and then copy it to the ESXi.

Thank's for the welcome and thanks for answer.

The VM has no snapshots, even i tried to virtualize my own physical machine but still the same error.

Thanks for your update. Please answer these questions to help me understand it better:
1. What is the conversion scenario?
2. Did you try converting the file as a LOCAL file on your source machine, not to a file on the DESTINATION vCenter?
3. did you try converting a file to ESXi host, not vCenter?
4. What is the currently used ESXi license installed?
