VMM : Lan Migration using BITS fail with error: HostAgentFail (2912) … and HRESULT: 0x800704DD

 

This error occur when you either a new virtual machine creation or during a virtual machine migration over the network (LAN migration using BITS) 

The causes for this error could be:
 
1. The VMMAgent windows service is running using an account that is not LocalSystem.
Confirm and if this is the case, make the vmmagent service run as localsystem on both the VMM Server computer and on all the Host and Library server computers.

 

2. The Log On account for the VMMService windows service on the VMM server computer is running under an account other than localsystem.
Althoug using domain account is a fully supported scenario, however, the domain account ( e.g. contososcvmmadmin) needs to be logged into the VMM server computer in order for BITS jobs to complete successfully. Login as that account and then try the operation again. It should work.
