HI, i have a 2008 hyper-v system with 2 virtual machines running.
This morning i went to connect to one in the console. And all it does is say connecting to server name. And thats it, then says not responding.
In event viewer i get
event id 1002 - application hang
the program vmconnect.exe version 6.0.6002.18005 stopped interacting with windows and was closed

the virtual machines seem to be running fine. But i haven't setup any remote access programs on them to be able to edit them.

any idea's

Hyper-v uses the built in RDP app to connect to the VM. Can you connect to another machine using RDP to confirm it's working correctly?
Can you ping the VM?

i've got 2 servers named
e2007 - which i can ping
sqlserver - which i can't ping and were typically migrating our database to tomorrow, great timing.

Is Rebooting the main server going to help or hinder ?

It can't hurt as long as you shut down the VMs first

Problem solved. I noticed a load of dfs rep error's not contacting the DC on the main VM server.
I changed the DNS settings to point to the new DNS server, which was put in 3 months ago. And i had taken out the old one. But forgot to change the settings on the VM server.
Then all the server consoles loaded automatically.
Why has this taken 3 months to suddenly happen ?

thanks for your help
