I would uninstall SEP from Hyper-v server. I had a similar problem with it in the past. besides, if you are running only Hyper-v role what is the purpose of an anti-virus? You could easily lock-down the server without it.

Did you try to exclude the folders where the VHD and VM config files are located from Symantec Endpoint; delete the virtual network and re-create it?
