Unable to start replicated virtual machine. Key protector could not be unwrapped RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have 2 virtual machines that are replicating to another Hyper-V host.  One machine works and starts up fine and seems to run fine, but if I try to start my other VM it immediately come up with the error "the application encountered an error while attempting to change the state of 'server'.  'Server' failed to start.  'Server' could not initialize.  The key protector could not be unwrapped. Details are included in the HostGuardianService-Client event log.

    In the details section it does say local certificates not found : signing Count = 0, encrypt = 0

    I am not encrypting the drives of the hyper visor or the VMs that are running below it and I am not using shielded machines.  Any help would  be great.  Thanks

    This one is for Virtual Server 2005, which isn't Hyper-V based.
