PKI: Private Key Export failed during CA migration

I am currently lead a project for PKI migration from 2003 Servers to 2012 R2.
ISSUE: During migration one of CAs I observed an error when I tried to restore a Private Key saved on an old CA to the new CA.
The error said: Import private key: Active directory certificate services setup failed with the following error: Cannot find object or property. 0x80092004 (-2146885628 crypt_e_not_found)
RESOLUTION: I checked the machine local storage and found the old CA certificate there (without Private Key). The certificate was installed by GPO. I deleted the certificate and retry Private Key import from CA installation wizard (where it failed). This time the cert was imported successfully.
