Windows 10 Hyper-V remote management RRS feed

  • Soru

  • Hello everyone,

    This is my first post, so I'm not sure if this is the right category.

    I am a IT student and use Hyper-V on my laptop and desktop, I would like to remote manage the virtual machines so I can easily use my laptop vm's.

    I've tried a lot of tutorials, but none seem to be working. This is the error I get all the time:

    "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"

    I use both my desktop and laptop in a workgroup enviroment and have them connected over LAN. My desktop being (DAVID-DESKTOP) and  my laptop (DAVID-LAPTOP)

    • I have added my desktop to TrustedHosts and vice versa if that is needed 
    • I have the Hyper-V Virtual Machine Machine Management service running on the laptop 
    • I have cmdkey from my laptop in my desktop, is that correct? I have added both the IP and hostname, it didn't work either way.
    • I have disabled the firewall on my laptop and desktop while testing this

    I am not yet allowed to insert links/images, so they will come soon (I hope)

    So with having tried all the above options, what am I doing wrong?

  • Hi,

    You may need to enable WinRM to get Windows 10 Hyper-V Management to connect to a Hyper-V server. The server is stand-alone so also needed to add it as a trusted WinRM host.

    This article although for PowerShell remote does cover WinRM:

    Enable and Use Remote Commands in Windows PowerShell

    Best Regards,

  • Hi Tao,

    Thanks for your response.

    I typed the command "get-service winrm" and it is indeed running.

  • What OSes are you using for both?  Windows 8 or Windows 10?

    You're in the Win8 group, but your title says Win10.

    Mixing generations of Hyper-V doesn't always work too well with regards to remote management.

  • I don't know why this post is in the Win8 group.

    Both my laptop and desktop are on Windows 10 Education 64bit, version 1703, build 15063.413

  • Maybe that a moderator can change the forum and category this post is in, I don't think that my question belongs here
