vSphere: Invalid network in property vami.netmask0 Error

This error typically occurs if you have changed the port group assignment for a vApp via the VSphere client or web management interface. Doing so is not recomended and should typically be performed within the vApp's management interface.

Anyhow for those of you (including myself) who thought it would be a good idea to do otherwise please refer to the below:

Go to your Datacenter >> IP Pools >> Select the appropriate IP pool and ensure that the correct network is assosiated with it by going to Properties >> Assosiations >> Select the relevent network(s).

We also need to ensure the vApp itself is using the correct network - so from the vSphere traditional client we right-hand click on the vApp >> Edit Settings >> Options tab >> select 'Advanced' under the vApp Options node and hit the 'Properties' button in the Properties section.

From here ensure all entries in the "Networking Properties" are pointing to the appropriate port group and then attempt to start the VM again.
