I am running a Hyper V cluster with two hyper v hosts and one of the host says Host not responding. We cannot see the GUI when we connected to a monitor, nor we can do a remote desktop connect to the server it simply hangs at creating session while doing RDP. Issue is there are few critical vm's running under it which we cannot take them down or risk loosing them due to some issue in future. Is there a way to get the host GUI back without disturbing the VM's? so I can safely migrate the vm's to another host and perform maintenance once I get access to GUI. As of now I feel its too risky to attempt host migration without knowing the root cause.

I have powershell access to that host and I tried restarting terminal services to attempt successful RDP connection however with no luck too.

Looking forward for experts help to get this resolved

Thanks
