I have a Hyper-V Manager in a workgroup on and a Freecom NAS drive on Both are in a workgroup called JGL.
When creating a new VM I point the .iso location to \\\Software\server2016.iso which it accepts but when I click finish I get the error:
From Windows Explorer I can map to \\\Software and I'm prompted for a username and password and I click "remember" (subsequent connects don't require credentials)
I can't see anywhere in Hyper-V where I can enter credentials.
