Remotely manage Hyper-V 2016 via Windows 10

Hi guys again, If you want a fast server and if are you going to use only hyper-v server role, you can use hyper-v core. By the way, after installed windows server 2016 core, you are going to need some information at the below. I tested with my own experience and used it at one of my freelance projects. These informations are short and easy. Good lucks while working your works.

On the Hyper-V server

  • Install Hyper-V Server 2016 (without GUI)
  • Set server name
  • Enable Configure remote management
  • Enable Remote Desktop
  • Set server’s network IP address

Run PowerShell as Admin and run in sequence the commands at the below on your Server

Install-WindowsFeature Hyper-V

Enable-NetFireWallRule -DisplayName “Windows Management Instrumentation (DCOM-In)”

Enable-NetFireWallRule -DisplayGroup “Remote Event Log Management”

Enable-NetFireWallRule -DisplayGroup “Remote Service Management”

Enable-NetFireWallRule -DisplayGroup “Remote Volume Management”

Enable-NetFireWallRule -DisplayGroup “Windows Firewall Remote Management”

Enable-NetFireWallRule -DisplayGroup “Remote Scheduled Tasks Management”

Get-NetFirewallProfile | Set-NetFirewallProfile -enabled false


Enable-WSManCredSSP -Role server

And run the last command on the management server to be done:

Enable-NetFirewallRule -DisplayGroup “Remote Volume Management.”

On the Client Machine (Windows 10)

You are going to do some changes to manage Hyper-V Server. And now Run PowerShell as Admin and run in sequence the commands at the below.


Set-Item WSMan:\localhost\Client\TrustedHosts -Value ServerName

Enable-WSManCredSSP -Role client -DelegateComputer ServerName

Enable-WindowsOptionalFeature -Online -FeatureName:Microsoft-Hyper-V -All

cmdkey /add:ServerName /user:ServerAdministratorName /pass:ServerAdministratorPassword

Look at the picture at the below for example.

core server settings on windows 10

  • Change network type to Private
  • Add a DNS entry in your hostfile, for example “192.x.x.x ServerName“. After this process, be sure you can send ping packets from client to server.

ping hyper-v core server

  • Changed group policy: “Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > System > Credentials Delegation > Allow delegating fresh credentials with NTLM-only server authentication” by doing: “Click Enable and add wsman/ServerName”
  • Disabled firewall
  • dcomcnfg > COM SECURITY > Access Permissions > Edit Limits > Anonymous Login > ALLOW Remote Access

If you have done everything, you can connect to your core server successfully like this picture.
