can't convert physical to VHD using Microsoft Virtual Machine Manager

Last Modified: 2013-11-06
I have installed MS VMM server on windows server 2008 R2 Ent. 64bit  I have one more physical machine win 2003 Ent 32 bit. I want to convert this physical machine to VHD and upload it to other Hyper-V server.

When I tried to convert P2V it says I need to add the host action first. SO I tried to add the physical machine and I got following error message

Error (2912)
An internal error has occurred trying to contact an agent on the "Machine Name "server.
 (Unknown error (0x80072f0d))

Recommended Action
Ensure the agent is installed and running. Ensure the WS-Management service is installed and running, then restart the agent.

Please help me to solve this error.

Thanks in advance.
