SCVMM error 3101

Whenever i try to create a new virtual machine or do a P2V i constantly get a error 3101 stating that

VMM failed to mount the VHD file
internal error code: 0x80990c1d

Recommended Action: To check device manager/system devices to ensure that virtual server storage bus is installed and functional if not, install VHD mount component of virtaul server. Restart virtual disk service.

I have followed the above actions and all the things seems to be in place.

Any Suggestion will be highly appreciated.

Thanks

It seems something is either missing or corrupt with SCVMM. I would repair the installation or reinstall if it does not work.

Commented:
Nothing is missing with the install, it was a clean one. I have already tried a reinstall but to no avail.

Commented:
Are you trying to bring up the new VHD on a Hyper-V Failover Cluster?
Is the target path using a drive letter or a volume GUID?
Is the target volume SCSI, iSCSI, Fibre Channel, local disk?

Author

Commented:
There is no Hyper-V failover cluster involved.
The VHD is there on a Local Disk. (No shared storage is present)
I am trying to P2V on a physical host that is running Win server 2003, with Virtual Server 2005.

No it is not an IBM SAN!
