Windows 10 - Hyper-V - Virtual Switch and Ethernet port General access denied error 0x80070005 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have Windows 10 Pro and when I try to add external New Virtual Switch (via option „Virtual Switch Manager…”) to my current virtual machine I always receive warning message: „Can’t connect Ethernet port {signature} failed. General access denied error (0x80070005).” Moreover I have installed Kaspersky Internet Security but for this operation I have turned off this antivirus. I have completely no idea what's going wrong...

    Somebody knows can I solve this problem?

    Is there any way to check which process or application is blocking required resources?

  • Hi MarGeXL,

    Do you have a VPN client installed? I had issues creating a virtual switch in Hyper-V in the past when I had a vpn client installed (which added its own virtual NIC). If you do, uninstall it, then create your virtual switch and then install your vpn client.

  • Hi Arvin,

    Thanks for your suggestion but I checked and I don't have VPN installed.
