How to give permissions to a user to connect hyper-v vm console in Windows Server 2016

    Question

  • Hello,

    I need to give some users rights to connect directly to a hyper-v vm console in a member domain Hyper-V 2016 server.

    I don't want to give the users Local Administrator rights of the server an if is possible I don't want to give them Hyper-V admin rights.

    I tried these but without any result:

    I installed in every user desktop Hyper-v Manager administration tool and I added them to Hyper-V Administrators local group of Hyper-V server. This didn't work.

    I also gave permisssions to connectt  with cmd-let Grant-VMConnectAccess, but didtn't work.

    When I try to connect I appears a message "You do not have the required permission to complete this task. Contact the administrator of the authorization policy for the computer.

    If I try the same but adding them in Local Administrator group works perfect, but I don't need that.

    Can someone help me, please?

    Kind regards

    >>I installed in every user desktop Hyper-v Manager administration tool and I added them to Hyper-V Administrators local group of Hyper-V server. This didn't work.

    I tested it in my lab (windows 10 connect to server 2016 hyper-v server , they are in same domain) .

    I added that user account into local group "Hyper-v Administrator" and "Remote Management Users" of hyper-v server , then it works .
