Is it possible to remotely manage Hyper-V running on Windows Server 2008 R2 with the Hyper-V Manager on Windows 10? I know that the Hyper-V Manager on Windows Server 2012 R2 is not backwards compatible with 2008 R2 (I don't know if Microsoft decided to add backwards compatibility for Hyper-V in Windows 10).
I have a Windows 10 vm with Hyper-V installed and when I try to connect to the host as a domain admin, I get a message that says:
An Error occurred while attempting to connect to server "Virtual1". Check that the Virtual Machine Management service is running and that you are authorized to connect to the server. You do not have the required permission to complete this task. Contact the administrator of the authorization policy for the computer 'Virtual1'.
This error message doesn't tell me if I'm wasting my time or not and I have not found any websites stating that Windows 10 Hyper-V Manager is not backwards compatible with Windows Server 2008 R2. I've tried running
winrm quickconfig on the host machine, as recommended on another ServerFault page for Windows 10 and Windows Server 2012 R2, but that doesn't seem to help. I'm able to remotely manage Hyper-V on my Windows 7 machine without any problems.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
