Moving a Hyper-V 2012 VM to a new host when it has replica enabled

Is there any clean way to move a Hyper-V 2012 vm from one host to another when it has replica enabled?  Short of turning off replication, removing everything and starting replication over?  Would prefer not to have to do a complete transfer offsite again.  

I've been "testing" this and so far this is the only way I've been able to get it to work is by starting from scratch.  If this is the case, bummer.

You should be able to live migrate from one host to another as long as the other host is not the one with the replica.

Negative.  Am moving the VM to a host that is NOT the recipient of the replica.  Moves fine, but once moved, the replica status goes critical and I get the following in the event viewer.  If I try to force the replica, the error occurs again.

Hyper-V could not replicate changes for virtual machine 'EXCH001.domain.internal': Cannot find object or property. (0x80092004).

Event is 32022 in the Hyper-V-VMMS log.  Unfortunately I can't find anything (useful) on this.

Sorry, not sure how that support article applies here.  still haven't figured out a way to do this without starting all over with a new replica.

I had the exact same error 0x80092004 after migrating VM's to a new Hyper-V host.
The complete description for this errorcode however is "Unable to initialize SSL support. Cannot find object or property".

Installed the certificate that was used for replication on the new server and resumed the replications with critical and warning state. Everything runs fine again. you will probably have to reset the statistics after the first replication, or just be patient....

So I'm not sure if you're facing the same problem, but in my case the certificate installation resolved the issue.

Haven't had a chance to test, but wanted to close this out for now.  Thanks for the suggestion; while I think we did do this, need to get it back into the lab to play with.
