Recently after a hard reboot Hyper-V Manager started without showing some of the target replica's.
a. I tried to reinitiate them from the source server, however this gave the dreaded 0x80004005.
b. I followed some of the online articles stating to remove the replica from the target server on C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Hyper-V sub folders and other drives. c. Rebooted the target machine, in the log it now states Cannot load a virtual machine configuration: Unspecified error (0x80004005). (Virtual machine ID B3992825-272F-40A2-9B82-6965AEF78863)
d. double checked if no files were lingering
e. Retried to replicate from source server, same issue
f. Opened on the target server C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Hyper-V\data.vmcx with notepad see that in the file there are references to B3992825-272F-40A2-9B82-6965AEF78863
g. used powershell Remove-VMReplication *
h. Reopened on the target server C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Hyper-V\data.vmcx with notepad see that in the file there are references to B3992825-272F-40A2-9B82-6965AEF78863
