I have two workgroup hosts running Hyper-V 2016 and they replicate some of their VMs between themselves using certificate auth.
I have inherited this setup and can see that some of the VMs are happy replicating themselves but we have a few VMs that are not replicated and therefore a single point of failure.
When enabling replication on one of the VMs that has not been replicated I can not get past the "specify replica server" screen on the Extended replication wizard.
I enter the name of the target replica server, click next and then the "Verifying configuration..." dialogue flashes on and off until it's manually stopped. (I've left it over night, to find it doing the same thing in the morning)
It's like it's stuck in some sort of infinite loop.
I've trawled the internet and cannot find a solution to this. The only thing that came close was a similar post suggesting removing the replication server from the trusted-host list.
The trusted host list on both of my servers is set to allow any *.
Anyone got any thoughts?
