unable to vmotion esx 4.x

Issue: Unable to vMotion few VMs between identical hosts.
Customer didnt want to edit the VM settings for all those affected VMs instead he wanted a solution.
What worked : Enable execute disable bit in the BIOS. (make sure it is either enabled across the cluster or disabled across the cluster)
