Hyper-V Win10 VM RDP issues

Hyper-V running on a Win10 Pro PC. Host and VM share the same NIC.  Recently RDP stopped working to the VM.  After someone tries to RDP in I have to force "Turn Off" the VM in the Hyper-V Management Console and then it allows me to connect via Hyper-V Manager until someone tries to RDP in to the VM again.  VM locks up and have to "Turn Off" again.  Tried removing and recreating the virtual switch and when I didn't that the VM allowed me to connect via HV Manager without having to hard power off.  I've poked around the network settings on the VM and host and haven't been able to figure out what might be causing this lock up.  Nothing jumps out at me from Eventvwr.  

Anyone heard of something like this?

When the VM "locks up" is it still accessible via the Hyper-V Manager Console?

No, not at all.  The only thing I can do from the Manager is Turn Off the VM.  It won't even Shut Down gracefully, it just errors.

To clarify: Right click on the VM in Hyper-V Manager and click on Connect fails?

Then the problem is likely with the host and not the guest.
I created a new VM and it's working fine for now.  I'll monitor the situation and report back here if I come up with anything but for now the client will remote in to this new VM.  Thanks for the responses Philip.  Have a good weekend.
