Hyper-V running on windows 2019 (fully patched)
Trying to replicate a fully patched Windows server 2016 to Azure via ASR. This was working up until about a week ago, and then stopped.
After much irritation I decided to just disable the replication and delete the recovery services vault and start over.
Updated to latest MARS and provider agent(s), updated all guest and host OS to latest, and errors to initiate/complete the initial replication fail.

Job will be failed.

Regarding PSremoting error, I can PSRemote to the VMHOST. It just seems that even though the MARS agent is set up and both the MARS and the provider are already registered (or I couldn't have gotten this far) that PSRmoting to the Hyper-V HOST is failing.

Please guide me, or let me know if you need other logs.

Thanks!
