Connect to Hyper-V Server Over VPN (As Authenticated Domain User)
Posted on 2011-10-22
Good Afternoon -
I'm trying to connect to my Hyper-V server over VPN from home this weekend.
If I connect to the VPN, open Hyper-V, and try to add my server's hostname it says I don't have the rights to do so. Yes, I know I could RDP to a remote PC for Hyper-V access, but am doing a few other things too.
One big issue is that my laptop here is not a member of the domain so if I could even find a way to join it over VPN, then that may work. Our company uses a PPTP VPN and we connect using Windows native VPN/DialUp connections.
Here's what I've tried...
- Tried opening Hyper-V using "RunAs" and using my domain credentials, but even when connected to VPN, Windows cannot authenticate my domain user
- Tried adding DC and other ips to hosts file then trying - nogo
- Tried adding laptop to domain when connected to VPN - nogo
Seemingly, the issue is that even though connected to VPN, I cannot authenticate no matter what. Also - Sometimes our VPN has issues populating DNS on the client PC so this may be a cause too.
Any ideas? Thanks!
