Although the exact cause of this issue is unknown, cases have shown a relation to the VM host. In one case, the VM was migrated to a new host, and that is when the issue began. Moving the VM back to its original host resolved the issue.
Also make sure that VMware tools are installed. Lack of VMware tools can cause this issue


Related to configuration of the VM Host. The request to the Mobility application is modified before it reaches the application.
