Facing issues in converting 32 bit RHEL 5 to Virtual Server using P2V


Initially I faced lot of issues while following physical to virtual steps. I have installed new kernel and removed Xen Kernel. I am able login via SSH. Hosts.allow looks fine. Now I am facing the below error

[#12] [2013-11-18 17:52:15.046 'App' 2939149200 error] [Converter Agent SysinfoQuery] while trying to execute "/usr/lib/vmware-vcenter-converter-standalone/bin/plink -noprompt -stdin -nokeycheck -P 22 root@ uname -m" received error code (1) with result: uname: illegal option -- m^M
[#12] usage: scp [-1246BCpqrv] [-c cipher] [-F ssh_config] [-i identity_file]^M
[#12] [-l limit] [-o ssh_option] [-P port] [-S program]^M
[#12] [[user@]host1:]file1 [...] [[user@]host2:]file2^M
[#12] ^M
[#12] [2013-11-18 17:52:15.046 'App' 2939149200 error] [Converter Agent SysinfoQuery] received an error code (1) from the ssh client that will be handled later^M
[#12] [2013-11-18 17:52:15.046 'App' 2939149200 error] [Converter Agent SysinfoQuery] could not determine if the source system was 32 or 64 bit; return code: 1; result: uname: illegal option -- m^M
[#12] usage: scp [-1246BCpqrv] [-c cipher] [-F ssh_config] [-i identity_file]^M
[#12] [-l limit] [-o ssh_option] [-P port] [-S program]^M

Even if I try manually, I receive an error

echo 81726354 | /usr/lib/vmware-vcenter-converter-standalone/bin/plink -noprompt -stdin -nokeycheck -P 22 root@ uname -m

uname: illegal option -- m
usage: scp [-1246BCpqrv] [-c cipher] [-F ssh_config] [-i identity_file]
[-l limit] [-o ssh_option] [-P port] [-S program]
[[user@]host1:]file1 [...] [[user@]host2:]file2

uname -a
Linux SPBLRDC045 2.6.18-92.1.10.el5 #1 SMP Mon Aug 4 14:38:32 EDT 2008 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

Kindly help me to fix this issue
