System Center 2012 Virtual Machine Manager error (0x8033803b)

Getting this error when trying to refresh a host in system center 2012 virtual machine manager?

Error (2927) A Hardware Management error has occurred trying to contact server meh.local :a:DestinationUnreachable :The WS-Management service cannot process the request. The service cannot find the resource identified by the resource URI and selectors. . Unknown error (0x8033803b) Recommended Action Check that WinRM is installed and running on server meh.local. For more information use the command “winrm helpmsg hresult”.

And when you run that nifty command on the remote machine are you getting this?

C:\Windows\System32>winrm helpmsg 0x8033803b

The WS-Management service cannot process the request. The resource URI is missing or it has an incorrect format. Check the documentation or use the following command for information on how to construct a resource URI: “winrm help uris”.

FIX: Then run this?command on the host server. (from this KB)

sc config winrm type= own

This solved my issue and I was able to refresh the host. ?One note is that I have two hosts, one is also a domain controller and it was the one I could not refresh. It saw the VMs but would not refresh the host info and I could not control the VMs. After running the command above it resolved it. that KB contains a number of fixes though so a different fix may apply to you.
