Hyper-V Manager - Access Denied


  • I have a Hyper-V Server Core 2012 in a workgroup environment and uses Hyper-V Manager in Windows 8.1 to manage my Hyper-V server.  It was working previously and when I try to connect to it today (it has been a month or two since I last connected to the server using Hyper-V Manager), I got the following error message within Hyper-V Manager: "Access Denied.  Unable to establish communication between '<server name>' and '<win8 computer name>'.  

    I had the same problem when I set it up initially but was able to get it to work by changing the access permission using DCOMCNFG.  

    What I also realized is when I right click on the Server node on the left pane, the Hyper-V Settings and Inspect Disk option seem to work.

    Does anyone has the same issue and had a solution?

  • The old question has to be asked - what changed?  Something must have changed between when you were able to manage them and now, so it is a matter of tracing it back.  My first step would be to ensure that everything you set up a couple months ago is still in effect.
