So I’m thinking about updating my virtual hosts so I wanted to try Hyper-V server 2012
So I downloaded and installed on a box, and installed windows 8 enterprise on another box.
Setup as follows
Both fix IP, DNS is correct for both boxes
Both on the same domain
Both have firewalls disabled
Both can ping each other
However if I try to Disk managed the Hyper-v box from the windows 8 machine or try and create a Virtual machine I get a whole host of errors.
Main error I am getting is the following one
An Error occurred while attempting to connect to <server>. Check that the virtual machine Management service is running and that you are authorized to connect to the server.
Cannot connect to RPC service on the Computer '<server name>, make sure your RPC service is running.
So my question is there a simple step by step guild anywhere I can follow to get this working, as it’s been two days now investigating trying all sorts of fixes and nothing is working.
have you enabled remote management via the sconfig menu?
What account are you trying to connect via? there is a Hyper-V administrator group on the host that you can add the user to if not using administrator or someone in the administrators group
You can also check that the vmms service is running
in the cmd console on the hyper-v server write
and see if it is runningHere is a simple get started guide but maybe not covering your problems : http://blogs.technet.com/b/keithmayer/archive/2012/09/07/getting-started-with-hyper-v-server-2012-hyperv-virtualization-itpro.aspx#.USy8rVrrkww
To see if you could add a vm on the host you can use the Powershell cmdlets
in the cmd window, type powershell.exe and then type New-VM -NoVHD -Name EMSVM01 -MemoryStartupBytes 256MB
does that work?
can you run
and then see the VM?
and then run Start-VM EMSVM01
What kind of hardware did you install the Hyper-V server on? is the virtualization cpu feature enabled and updated?
I have a similar problem connecting to Hyper-v server 2012.
Everything is set up right. Both machines in the same domain, logging in as the same domain admin (who's doubly added as a local admin)
If I reboot my vm a few times I can get it to work, but it rarely works on the first try.
I have a third-party administration tool that I'm trying out and it seems to work fine-- and even on Windows 7.
Yes,... can't you see? "it is 'marked' as an answer and everything. Clearly he got 'points' for calling his worthless drivel an answer, and I spent my time here reading this question that really has no answers yet because when I searched TechNet for it, it came up as "Answered Question"
...more time wasted thanks to Microsoft's "point" system taking precedence over actual valuable answers in the forums....
