Hyper-v Manager fails to connect

Posted on 2011-03-09

I'm administrating a small network with a SBS2008 running virtual.
The virtulization server - named HOST1 - has a strange and annoying problem!

Sometimes the Hyper-V Manager looses connection with the virtual machines.
I can start the HV Manager and see the the local server name in the upper right corner but I can't connect.

The servers running virtual is NOT affected and is functioning normal.
When this happens apparantly the only thing I can do is restarting HOST1.
Restarting Hyper-V services does not help.

Any suggestions :-)

I am fylly able to access the servers running virtual through Remote Desktop.
Nothing seems to be affected - except that I find it concerning that I can't use the HV Manager.

How do I reinstall the Hyper-V Integration service?? :-)

There are some known connectivity issues between host and VM. Try disabling DMA and Large Send Offload on the Host's NIC, as per the following article:

There are many hotfixes for both Hyper-V 2008 and Hyper-V 2008 R2 that you won't get via Windows Update. There are two technet articles listing all of them. A Google search will find them. You will find that Hyper-V runs a lot better when fully patched.
