The configuration registry database is corrupt (0x800703F1)

Got the following error when creating a VM template in Virtual Machine Manager:

Error (2912)
An internal error has occurred trying to contact the vmms01 server: : .

WinRM: URL: [http://vmms01.mgmt.local:5985], Verb: [INVOKE], Method: [LoadSubkey], Resource: [\Users\SVC_VMM\AppData\Local\Temp\tmp6AB5.tmp]

The configuration registry database is corrupt (0x800703F1)

Recommended Action
Check that WS-Management service is installed and running on server vmms01.mgmt.local. For more information use the command "winrm helpmsg hresult". If vmms01.mgmt.local is a host/library/update server or a PXE server role then ensure that VMM agent is installed and running. Refer to for more details.

The problem is that the VM was already sysprepped.
Just start the VM, login with a user and you’re set. 🙂
