Managing Hyper-V from workgroup PC

I have a old PC running Server2012 which is configured with Hyper-V.

Previously I have used these instructions to manage the server  (which isnt part of a domain) from a Windows 8.1 client (which isnt part of a domain).

I have recently reinstalled Windows 8.1 on my laptop and I am now unable to get the remote admin function working.

I get the error - 740 :The requested operation requires elevation.

Even when starting with a basic command like :

runas /user:username mmc

I get prompted for the password but then get the 740 error.

Any suggestions what I am doing wrong?

have you tried using credential manager then adding IP of the HV server + .\localadmin?

Check UAC or run mmc "as administrator".

You reinstalled windows and probably had UAC off on your previous installation, I guess.
Do you know what elevation is? You would need not only to use an administrative account but also elevate the mmc.

I am the local admin on the PC and I have run CMD as an administator before trying out the commands mentioned. I have also tried disabling UAC and this did nothing either.

Go to GPEDIT.msc
Select Computer Configuration - Windows Settings - Local Policies - Security Options
 
There are several here for "User Account Control"  (Toward the bottom)
 
Choose the one with Behavior of the eleveation prompt for Administrators.....

If you disable UAC and restart AND your account is local admin, you will never see the message "The requested operation requires elevation." - this can't be. So please re-describe the error with UAC off.

Your server and PC isnt part of a domain. They should have the same local account.

I finally resolved this my enabling the administrator account of the local PC and setting the password to match the local admin account on the server. It then worked fine.

I had been using an account on the local PC called Hyper which matched an identical account on the server. Both of these accounts had full admin rights but just did not work. I still dont know why it worked with built in admin accounts and not with the admin accounts I created but it does.
