After joining my Windows 10 workstation to the domain, I am unable to manage via Hyper-V Manager. The Hyper-V 2012R2 server remains in a workgroup.

When I try to log into Hyper-V Manager as the vmserver's local administrator account, I get the error "You do not have the required permission to complete this task. Contact the administrator of the authorization policy for the computer 'vm-server'.

I have my trusted hosts set with an *[domain name], and hvremote checks out on the server with no errors. Firewalls are off between the server and workstation. Local Administrator account is listed as a stored credential in cmdkey, even.

Any idea what went wrong?

    Can you explain why your client is joined to the domain but your server is on a workgroup? – D34DM347 Dec 11 '15 at 15:49

Since hvremote checks out, perhaps the below may help?

It seems a bit odd to me that I can’t access VM’s located on my local machine, especially when I’m a local administrator.

After looking around a bit, I found that there is a local Hyper-V Administrators group that by default is empty. Add yourself to the group by doing the following:

Access the Computer Management interface.

In Windows 7 and Windows 8, this can be found by simply searching for Computer Management.

Expand the Local Users and Groups section and click on Groups

Double click on the Hyper-V Administrators group

In the Dialogue box, click Add… and then enter your user name in the box and hit OK.

Hit OK again and close out of Computer Management

One more caveat. In my experience, I needed to log out and log back into Windows for the changes to work.
