Windows 10 Pro Hyper-V Remote Management to Hyper-V on a Windows Server 2012R2

I am attempting to access a Hyper-V Management Console from a Windows 10 Pro Version 10.0.18362 Build 18362. The Hyper-V Server is running on a Window Server 2012R2. I am getting the following message when I attempt to access the
Hyper-V Server from my Windows 10 Pro workstation.

The workstation and the Server are on the same domain and the Server is a domain controller. I have the domain user as a local user on the workstation and in the Hyper-V administrator group and the user is on the Server in the Hyper-V administrator group. 

Looking at the Microsoft FAQ on Hyper-V the Windows 10 Pro Hyper-V MMC is backward compatable to Windows Server 2012R2.  

Can anyone help with this issue or did Microsoft break this with the latest version of Windows 10 Pro.

Unable to start replicated virtual machine. Key protector could not be unwrapped

I have 2 virtual machines that are replicating to another Hyper-V host.  One machine works and starts up fine and seems to run fine, but if I try to start my other VM it immediately come up with the error "the application encountered an
error while attempting to change the state of ‘server’.  ‘Server’ failed to start.  ‘Server’ could not initialize.  The key protector could not be unwrapped. Details are included in the HostGuardianService-Client event log.

In the details section it does say local certificates not found : signing Count = 0, encrypt = 0

I am not encrypting the drives of the hyper visor or the VMs that are running below it and I am not using shielded machines.  Any help would  be great.  Thanks

Snapshot merge process stuck on Merge in Progress (20%)

Hi guys, 

On Hyper-V 2019 (which is a member of the Failover Cluster) I took a checkpoint for one of the machines.

3 hours later I deleted that checkpoint and now can see that merging process stuck on Merge in Progress (20%) and its been like this for 15-20 minutes. 



However Get-VM | Get-VMSnapshot doesn’t show any snapshots. 

What is this and how to resolve it? 

Thank you.

Hyper-v Stange NIC issue – can’t ping network but local.

I am trying to move a Hyper V sever (windows 2008) to another hyper v host. When I try to export the Hyper-V it immediately get an error:V: "An error occurred while attempting to export the virtual machine".

So I just moved the VHD file and re-setup the Hyper-V. This works fine BUT not when I set the server to the IP Address is was (192.168.1.5) it can only ping and connect to the local network . Any workstations on the VPN WAN (SONICWALL VPNs) it cannot ping or
connect and vise versa ( example 192.169.1.x is fine but 192.168.20.x can’t see). If I change the IP of the server to anything but 192.168.1.5 everything is fine, but it needs to be the IP it was before. Any ideas on this? I have removed all hidden NICs in
the server.

Thanks
