Hyper-V Manager on Windows 10 (domain) doesn't display Hyper-V settings of remote 2016 host (workgroup)


  • I followed the instructions on this page

    I'm connecting to a 2016 Hyper-V core host (workgroup) from a Windows 10 pro client (domain).

    I am able to manage the 2016 Hyper-V server with powershell from the Windows 10 client. (Enter-PSSession)

    I can see/manage the Hyper-V server in Server Manager on the Windows 10 client.

    If I right-click the Hyper-V server in Server Manager and select Hyper-V Manager, it launches an empty Hyper-V Manager.

    If I "Connect to Server…" and enter invalid credentials, I do receive an error "You do not have the required permission to complete this task. Contact the administrator of the authorization policy for the computer".

    If I "Connect to Server…" and enter valid credentials, I receive no feedback, the window remains blank and nothing happens.

    This was working from a local user account on the windows 10 PC before I joined it to a domain, it doesn't work regardless of whether I'm logged into the windows 10 machine as a local user or a domain user.

    Any troubleshooting tips would be greatly appreciated.

  • I have set the TrustedHosts as you suggested (I tried fqdn and wildcards).

    When I right-click server and select Hyper-v has the same results (Hyper-V manager displays no hosts).

  • Hello did you get anywhere with this? Have tried all steps you've detailed and my scenario is exactly as you described - attempting to connect through Hyper-V Manager as any user just does nothing, no feedback at all. Have tried logging in to domain joined PC as local user but same thing happens. Any help much appreciated.
