Connecting to Windows 2012 Server Core with Hyper-V Manager from Windows 10


I installed Windows 10 Enterprise in a VM and am trying to connect to a Windows 2012 Server Core using Hyper-V Manager.  I can still connect without problems from a Windows 8.1 VM.  I have used hvremote.wsf and done everything necessary but am still getting the error in the screenshot.

Any ideas?

Make sure that username and password on Hyper-V and windows 10 machine  are same. If you are added windows 10 in domain, remove it from domain and again join it and try.

You installed Windows 10 into hyper-V.. Hyper-V is located WHERE? on the Windows 7 Pro machine or on the Server? if remote desktop is
Did you run 'winrm quickconfig'
in the firewall settings did you enable the predefined rules
Windows Remote Management
Windows Remote Management (compatible)  ?

HVRemote by John Howard can help.

There's a catch though, normally Hyper-V Management, Failover Cluster Management, and other MMCs/Snap-Ins require the same version. So, 2012 R2 would be Windows 8.1 for management and RSAT.

There have been workarounds placed for back version management with 8/8.1 though I've not seen anything for 10 yet.

Windows 10 is running on my Surface Pro 3.  Windows 2012 is on a Dell PowerEdge server.  Neither are in a domain.

I used hvremote.wsf to set it up but I think that Philip is correct in that it is a problem with Windows Remote Management because they are not the same version.  Does anyone else have a fix?

I've seen that current Win10 RSAT can indeed back version manage so you should be okay after the HVRemote steps.
