When storing a VM in the Library from a remote host the jobe fails:

Error (2912)
An internal error has occurred trying to contact an agent on the VMserver1 server.
 (Element not found (0x80070490))

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

Looking for a resolution I found:

This talks about basically resetting the certificates.

Now the real bad part is after the failed migration to the library the VM files are no longer on the former host and they are not on the VM library either. Basically the machine idisappears and I was not able to recover it with any of the repair options in VMM.

Anybody has any idea how to recover the "lost" VM?
