Error (2916) VMM is unable to complete the request. The connection to the agent was lost.

01 Oct

This error message appeared when I built a new HyperV 2008 R2 server and a System Center Virtual Machine Manager server when I attempt to convert a physical server to a VM:

Error (2916) VMM is unable to complete the request. The connection to the agent <server name> was lost.

The easiest way to correct this error is to perform the following on the HyperV server:

  1. In the open command prompt, type the following: winrm quickconfig
  2. When prompted, enter Y for the default answer

You should now be able to add your physical server.
