Cannot connect to a Guest VM in 2019 Hyper-V

Last Modified: 2020-12-03
Hi All,

Have a unique problem.

I have a Windows 2019 (non-Core) Hyper-V host server with all current updates with 10 VM's and all are either Win10 or Win2019.

Problem is that on this host server in Hyper-V manager I was previously able to Right click on a VM and Connect and have the session into a VM but now I cannot do it any more. I click and the cursor changes for a second and then nothing happens with no error message.

I am however able to do all this from a Windows 10 client machine which has a Hyper-V Manager installed and connected to the host server.

I am also able to RDP into the guest VM's from the Host server and other clents.

Any help will be appreciated. Thanks
