Windows 10 VMs not showing interactive session from console but Windows 7 VMs do? Also VM locks when workstation locks?

    Question

  • Hello

    1. When using Hyper-V manager to connect to our server we can see the Win7 VMs when someone is logged into them. We only see the lock screen on Win10 VM when someone is logged in.

    2. If the workstation running Hyper-v manager locks and someone else has a remote connection running inside the Hyper-V Win10 VM, that connection is affected. This does not occur in the Win7 VMs.

    I compared VM level settings and am not seeing anything different short of storage location. I assume it is an OS related setting.

    Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Most likely is correct. I'd reach out to experts in dedicated forums here.

  • Hi,

    How are things going on?

    For first question, based on my experience, we can see the user who's logon on the lock screen of win7, whereas it didn't shown on win10. It is a design behavior. 

    Second question, may I know more detailed information? Or you can screenshot for it to post here?

  • Hi Nick,

    I'm confused about this sentence>>

    If the workstation running Hyper-v manager locks and someone else has a remote connection running inside the Hyper-V Win10 VM, that connection is affected.

    Is there any error information? Or a screenshot for the symptom?

  • I apologize for the delay in replying. Below are screenshots of the issue. If you notice, VMs that have Win7 as the OS we can see from the console when a user is logged into the VM. Win10 VMs however we cannot.
