Connect locally (local domain or local network) to Microsoft Hyper-V server


Hello friends ,

I had some very interesting problem when i try to connect to my hyper V server with in a local network.

When i try to connect from workgroup i get this massage :

You do not have the required permission to complete this task. Contact the administrator of the authorization policy for the computer ‘COMPUTERNAME’



The only thing that saved me is this post ,

Remember 🙂 connecting via local domain (workgroup) is very problematic if you don’t follow those steps :


Part 1 :

Part 2:


IMPORTANT!!!! You need to do this step in the following scenarios:

  • Client and server are both in a workgroup
  • Client is a workgroup and server is in a domain
  • Client is in a domain and server is in a workgroup
  • Both client and server are in domains, but there is NO TRUST between them.  

You DO NOT NEED TO DO THIS STEP if the client and server are in either the same or trusted domains.

Update 14th Nov 2008. I’ve just released a script which does all this configuration in one or two command lines:HVRemote


Good luck .
