You need to change the Firewall rules on both machines (NOT only the Hyper-V Server)

Run this command on both machines:

netsh advfirewall firewall set rule group="Remote Volume Management" new enable=yes

GREAT. Updating firewall on both sides was the case. Thank you –  GrZeCh Aug 29 '09 at 11:35
I'm still getting this. It was succesfull on my physical machine, but when I executed this command on my Virtual Client, it said: "No rules matched the given criteria". That's translated, since the machine runs Dutch language. –  KdgDev Oct 1 '10 at 10:14
