  • Remove the settings under the HKEY_Local_Machine\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\HybridRunbookWorker -> key
  • Go to the Azure Portal and open the Automation Account
  • Under System Hybrid Worker groups, find the virtual machine you having issues with
  • Delete that System Hybrid worker group

After this go back into your MMA settings, give up your workspace details and the VM will show up after a few minutes.
