No connect between two server 2016 over hyper-v-manager. One is core (without gui). How to set up replication with powershell then?

We have to create a replication from server2016 (A)  with gui to server2016 without gui (core) (B). Both are not in the domain. I cant connect  to from A to B over hyper-V-manager. How can we set up a replication from A to B using powershell ?
Is there any good and easy to understand tutorial ?

Thanks for helping

In addition to Adam's excellent link: Hyper-V Replica with self-signed certificates. This one was the needle in the haystack! :)

Example to create a 5 Year self-issued cert:
New-SelfSignedCertificate -Type "Custom" -KeyExportPolicy "Exportable" -Subject "CN=REPLICATION.DOMAIN.COM" -CertStoreLocation "Cert:\LocalMachine\My" -KeySpec "Signature" -KeyUsage "CertSign" -NotAfter (Get-Date).AddMonths(60)

Open in new window

Set REPLICATION.DOMAIN.COM to your root ID. It doesn't have to be .COM it could be .LOCAL or other TLD.

After getting the thumbprint create the certificate for the source and replica partner Hyper-V servers. Export all three and import on both Hyper-V servers. Make the registry change requested or an error will happen.
