  1. Easier way: runas /user:HYPERVSERVERNAME.\Administrator /netonly “mmc virtmgmt.msc”

    Note the . after the server name…this is assuming you want to connect to a hyper-v NOT connected to a domain. Enjoy!

      Thanks you so much Ahmad Sabry ElGendi & Matthew Baker. I tried a few thing but its by reading your post that I figured out that my “Workgroup” was different. Then I’ve tried Matthew’s solution and it did the trick for me. It felt like I was opening a safe. heheh
