  • Hi

    I have made a blog post about remote management

    Do you have both the client and the hyper-v server in a windows domain? 

    In the sconfig for the hyper-v server you can enable remote management.

  • look at this

    even if it is for win 7 it should be the same for 2012 and win 8

  • Speak to your provider, this should be a very common query they get, access depends on how they've set up the infrastructure sitting between your server and the internet.

  • nothing special

    hyper-v 2012 installed and direct access to internet

    firewall  disabled on server doesnt make any difference

    im about to give up

    this is a nightmare

  • Hi,

    Most of the times, when we talk about Hyper-V remote management, we mean a remote management scenario in internal network environment. That is there isn’t firewall between management client and Hyper-V host server.

    But you scenario, that is a Hyper-V host server in cloud, so that is in internet?

    I’m not sure whether your client is behind a firewall, but the Hyper-V host in cloud, if it is in an internet cloud, it should have a firewall. And for most of cloud server venders, RDP connection is the only allowed connection method. That means Windows firewall rule for Hyper-V remote management is disabled in cloud server internet firewall.

    You may contact your cloud server vender to check that, also if you has extra server in that cloud, you may configure remote management in that server and check the result.

    For more information please refer to following MS articles:

    Configure Hyper-V Server 2012 for Remote Management

    Hope this helps!

  • thanks for your reply.

    my situation:

    Windows 8 in workgroup with Ms account (ie for logging in.
    i have created a local account on client same as on Hyper-v server but i am logged in wth the MS account.

    Server with Hyper-v 2012 in external datacentre access via internet. Account is local.

    i have full access to server and can disable the firewall, unfortunately this doesnt make any difference.

    Client and server are standalone/ different workgroups, no domain.

    is the MS account on the client the problem?

    do i need to reconfigure my pc and login with a local acccount (and lose the MS account benefits)  to be able to connect?

  • Thanks, I have followed this guide over and over again. Unfortunately no luck.

    all the steps are ok till adding the firewall mmc. Im not able to connect. maybe this is related to hyper v manager problems.


    ! Client: locate MMC, and run it as an admin.
    # In windows 8/2012, go to search and type MMC. Right-click the icon, 
    # and choose run as admin on the bar below.

    ! Client: application MMC: select "file" --> Add/remove snap-in 
    ! --> (left pane) scroll down to "windows firewall" --> select and click "add"
    ! select "another computer"
    ! type the name of the server you want to manage (NO workgroup/ or //, just same name as you typed for cmdkey)

    * Part 2 is done.
    # Have a look by doubleclicking the firewall icon in the left pane.
    # It looks and works the same as the GUI version that you are familiar with.


    (adding event viewer isnt a problem)

    see video:

    i have found many entries about this 0x6d9 error

    for instance

    3 days and counting an still no access

    : Thanks for the help
