I convert about 17 Debian machines with Debian 8 with little or no problem.
(I understand that you need Debian 9 but that is my experience).
I'm think your problem is about the virtual hardware versión of
destination in your ESX.
I have all my machines with Virtual Hardware version: 11
Read this links, may be help you:
 What other requirements and considerations are there for virtual
