Hyper-V Replica Capacity Planner stuck getting VM information

I’m trying to use the Capacity Planner for Hyper-V replica tool to estimate requirements for a replica site.

It keeps getting stuck "Getting the VM and VHD from primary site, this can take upto several minutes…". I’ve waited over an hour, and it still sits there.

The primary site is a 3 node Hyper-V 2012R2 cluster. I have installed and configured the Hyper-V Replication Broker role on the cluster. For now, it’s set to use HTTP without any certificates.

I don’t have a replica site yet, so I’ve selected "Skip tests involving Replica site". For the primary site, I’ve tried pointing it at both the replication broker, and at one of the individual nodes. It gets stuck in the same place.

Other things I’ve tried:

  • Disabled windows firewall on all 3 nodes
  • Running the tool from one of the nodes, logged in as a domain admin account
  • Moving all the VMs off of one node, and pointing the tool at that now empty node
  • Let it run for longer - left it alone overnight.
  • Downloaded the tool again in case it was corrupt
  • Rebooted my computer

In all cases, it gets stuck at the exact same spot.

Any idea how to figure out why it is freezing? Have I missed configuring something important for the tool to run?
