Hyper-V 2012 R2 - operation on computer {computername} failed RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just installed Hyper-V 2012 R2 but I am having trouble connecting to it using Windows 7 Hyper-V Manager. I keep getting "The operation on computer {computername} failed." error.

    Lab Setup
    •Hyper-V 2012 R2 core (no gui) (AMD Phenom II)
    •Windows 7 Pro Hyper-V Manager (Intel Core2 Duo)

    Here is a list of changes I made.
     1.Same user on both machines.
     2.Same password.
     3.Same workgroup.
     4.Firewall rules.
     5.Static IP.
     6.Firewall state off.
     7.Host file edited with Hyper-V servername.

    These changes work for Hyper-V 2012 and Windows 7 Hyper-V manager but has no affect on Hyper-V 2012 R2.

    Do I need Windows 8 or 8.1 to connect to Hyper-V 2012 R2?
