  • Remote disk management is best handled within Server Manager.  The old disk management cannot handle remote management.

    Even then, there may be some firewall settings required.  I haven't gone through these in detail, so my first recommendation would be to try Server Manager for remote disk management.  If that still does not work, then add these firewall rules.

    Set-NetFirewallRule –Name “RVM-VDS-In-TCP” –Enabled True -Profile Any
    Set-NetFirewallRule –Name “RVM-VDSLDR-In-TCP” –Enabled True -Profile Any
    Set-NetFirewallRule –Name “RVM-RPCSS-In-TCP” –Enabled True -Profile Any

  • Hi Mvd12345,

    This powershell command should be run on both side .

    Also please check whether the service "virual disk" was running on "server " , you can use following CMD :

    sc config vds start=auto

    net start vds

    Best Regards

  • This worked, though I was not attempting to manage my disk from a server environment, rather locally - so not sure why... Thanks!

  • I got this error on a Server 2016 Datacenter Core - tried to Connect from Server Manager on a Server 2016 Management Server - is this Windows Firewall?

    (Windows Firewall is disabled) Dont know if this is a problem?

  • Solution was to enable this on the Management Server :

    netsh advfirewall firewall set rule group="Remote Volume Management" new enable=yes
