Hyper-V-server 2016


I installed Hyper-V-Server 2016 on a Dell server T610.

I would to manage it remotely via my laptop with Windows 7 Professional. So I Installed the called Hyper-V Manage.

The problem is I can't connect to my Hyper-V server within the hyper-v manager.

I have either the message : don't have access ...
or operation failed ...

Can someone help ?

Try to ping your Hyper-V server

Seem like a DNS issue

I can ping it. I can even connect to it via the command : net user m: \\xxx  ....

The version of Hyper-V Manager that comes with RSAT tools on Windows 7 does not work with Windows Server 2012 or later, so you need to either remote logon to the Windows Server 2016 and use the Hyper-V Manager on that or install Windows 8.1 or Windows 10 and use the Hyper-V tools provided with the RSAT tools for those versions.
Alternatively, use Microsoft Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM) to manage your Virtual Machines.

are you using the domain account ?
Hassan NOUR EL DINEIT ManagerAuthor Commented:
no i don't use a domain account. I created a common user with the same password on the Win7 machine and the hyper-v-server.

For information I didn't install Windows server 2016. But Hyper-V-Server 2016.

Are you working in Domain environment or Workgroup Environment

Can you please disable firewall
Hassan NOUR EL DINEIT ManagerAuthor Commented:
I'm working in WorkGroup Environement. I disabled the firewall via the command :

netsh advfirewall set allprofile state Off
Tahir QureshiSystem AnalystCommented:
Run the following powershell command in hyper v server

Enable-NetFirewallRule -DisplayGroup "*"

Install HyperV feature in Client Machine (I am assuming you have already enable)

Open Command Prompt with Admin Permission

cmdkey /add:yourHyper-VServerName /user:yourAdminUsername /pass

Lastly click on start and type dcomcnfg  

In Component Services, expand Component Services | Computers
Right-click on My Computer and select Properties
On the COM Security tab, select Edit Limits…
Select ANONYMOUS LOGON and place a check in the Allow column of Remote Access box
Select OK twice

I agree with Peter. You need to connect to another server with the 2016 Hyper-V management tools.
Philip ElderTechnical Architect - HA/Compute/StorageCommented:
If the host is in a workgroup then the only way to manage it is to use HVRemote (John Howard's tool) to set up both the Hyper-V host and the remote machine to manage it.

From a security perspective this is a _really bad idea_ as the process of making things work opens a lot of holes on the Hyper-V host.

We install GUI/Full Desktop on most standalone Hyper-V servers and manage via RDP or iLO/iDRAC/RMM KVM over IP in a pinch.
Lee W, MVPTechnology and Business Process AdvisorCommented:
I agree, it's unwise to turn off the firewall.  Further, as others have stated, you cannot manage Hyper-V 2016 with Windows 7 short of RDP session and managing on the system or POSSIBLY through powershell.  IF you want a GUI tool, I suggest you download and install 5Nine Manager (the free version) on the Hyper-V host.

Sorry for this delayed answer but I was sick. Finally I installed a win10 machine and applied the instructions/comments of "thr qureshi"
Now I can access Hyper-V-Server 2016. I also tried the 5nine solution It works fine also and is very convenient.

Just keep in mind that point. ANONYMOUS LOGON means _anyone_ has initial access to that host box.
