I just spent hours Downloading Hyper-V 2012 R2 into my test laptop. I want to run it in a workgroup environment as I do not have domain controller. I have windows 7 client and it is configured in a workgroup known as Test and I have useraccount already created in both the server and client. I tried to run the Hyper-V manager console and tried to connect and it keeps failing. I also followed the steps mentioned in this link http://pc-addicts.com/12-steps-to-remotely-manage-hyper-v-server-2012-core/
But nothing worked. I am frustrated finally as I have done work on Hyper V but did not see anything like this before. Is my client not compatible to connect to the server ? is there a compatibility issue here.
Please help as I want to do more with this Hyper - V 2012 R2 but I can not function or do anything right now.
