I have a problem with connecting to my VMs using the console. I get this error " The Connection was lost due to a network error...." error code 0x0404, 0x0000.
I'm using SCVMM 2012 SP1. This error comes instantly, so it's not timing out. If I connect to the Hyper-V host with the Hyper-V Manager, it works flawless. Any ideas on how to fix this?
Can you verify which port you are using on your Hyper-V servers for vmconnect.exe? the default port should be 2179, and is located on the 'host access' tab on the properties of the host.
are these VMs connected to a virtual network or vmnetwork?

I had the same issue. I was using the VMM console locally on my laptop and trying to connect to the console screen of virtual machines, located on Hyper-V cluster managed by a VMM server.
The solution for me was, to run the VMM console as a different user, specifying my credentials and in the Connect to Server window, specifying Use current Microsoft Windows session identitiy option.
And then I could connect to consoles of the virtual machines.
