Remote management of Server 2016 Hyper V Core RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Guys,

    hopefully someone can help me.

    I've got a server running Server 2016 HyperV Core edition.

    I have another full edition Server 2016 with HyperV.

    Both machines are on a workgroup.

    Both machines have firewall disabled.

    Both machines have eachothers names within trustedhost.

    Both machines can resolve DNS and ping.

    I have installed the certificates on both servers.

    I am able to browse to C$ from full edition to  core edition.

    I have enabled PSRemoting on both servers.

    When I try and access the remote server (Core) from the HyperV manager of the full edition it just disappears and nothing happens.

    When I try and enable replication betwen full to core I get as far as entering the replica server details but then the "verifying configuration" screen is just going off/on constantly and I get no further.

    If I pair my core edition and a Windows 10 machine I can successfully add in the core server to the HyperV manager of the Win10 PC.

    Any ideas?

    Thank you.

    For anyone else having this issue.

    on the  computer you want to use to remotely manage hyper.

    do this:

    cmdkey /add:<remotehypervservername> /user:Administrator /pass

    Server now shows up.
