Hyper-V Manager in Win 7 cannot connect to Hyper-V Server 2012 R2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I can use the Hyper-V Manager in Windows 8.1 to connect my newly installed Hyper-V Server 2012 R2 - everything fine.

    However, I cannot use the Hyper-V Manager in Windows 7 and Windows Vista to connect the same Server.

    It just shows "Connecting to Virtual Machine Management Service ..."
    Then "The operation on computer 'HYPERV' failed." - HYPERV is the computer name of the Hyper-V Server Core 2012 R2.

    At the Win 7 and Vista clients, run the script [cscript hvremote.wsf /target:hyperv /show] shows everything PASS except the below warning.

    1 warning or error was found in the configuration. Review the
    detailed output above to determine whether you need to take further action.
    Summary is below.
    1: You are attempting to connect to a newer version of Hyper-V.
      While some remote management *may* be possible, you should use a
      matching operating system version on the client for full
      management capabilities.


    Run the script [cscript hvremote.wsf /show] at the Win 7 and Vista clients show everything fine.

    Any help?
