I'm attempting to connect to a Win 2012 R2 Hyper-V server on a home network in a WORKGROUP setup using the Hyper-V Manager on my Windows 10 Pro laptop. All machines are local to the network. I had to do a reinstall of the OS on my Windows 10 Pro laptop and this is when the issue started. Previously, I was able to connect just fine. I had: Added the host as a trusted host on my laptop using Set-Item WSMan:\localhost\Client\TrustedHosts -Value 'HOST1' I went into DCOMCNFG to allow remote access for anonymous login. Disabled all firewalls Set the local admin password for the host under Network Passwords on my laptop Nothing changed on the server, and I have two other Windows 10 machines on the same network that are able to connect to the server just fine using Hyper-V Manager. The only difference here is this is a fresh install of Windows 10, and I understand some things changed in the Fall Creators Update, but I don't know what. I'm following the same steps, but when I try to connect to the server using Hyper-V Manager I get: Access Denied. Unable to establish communication between 'HOST1' and 'LANNISTER'. HOST1 is the server, LANNISTER is my laptop. Weird thing is, I can access the Virtual Switch Manager and view the switches on the server, but can't create a VM nor view the VMs. What else would I need to configure?
