Hello,

I am using hyper v on windows 10. I am trying to connect to 2012 R2 server remotely. I am getting error " RPC server unavailable , cannot establish connection between server and local PC". I checked the RPC in services they are running fine.
Any suggestions?

Thanks

ping the IP address of the server

Also is that server DC ? maybe you need to set DNS IP in IPv4 config

are you trying to remote access by IP address or by name ?

Are you trying to manage a 2012 R2 Hyper-V server from a Windows 10 machine running Hyper-V?

Is the 2012 R2 Hyper-V a member of the domain, if there is one, or not? If not, then there are a bunch of steps to run to allow a remote management session. They open things up pretty bad so we just log on to the desktop of the Hyper-V host when there is a need.

Well you should download RSAT for Win10 , as the hypervisor and Hyper-v snap in is different from what is on 2012r2 server

Simple thing: Make sure you run as a standard user on your machine and UAC is enabled.

Right click on Hyper-V Manager and Run As Admin. Credential for a domain admin/local admin on the Hyper-V box.
EDIT: Add the 2012 R2 server to Hyper-V Management.
Manage. :)

Do _not_ add your Standard User account to the Local Administrators group on the Hyper-V system!

EDIT #2: NOTE: Make sure your Win10 is up to date. Early versions of Win10 could not manage down level operating systems and services.
