Hyper-V failed to enable replication – Hyper-V cannot connect to the replica server.

Hyper-V cannot connect to the specified Replica Server "XXXXX" Error: The operation timed out (0x00002EE2).verify that the specified server is enabled as Replica server, Allows inbound connection on port ’80’ , and supports same authentication scheme.

Main site Broker is OK, and I am able to access the shared storage normally:

DR Broker role OK and able to access the shared storage normally as well :

Some said to open port 80 on firewall , my case it is DISABLED on the cluster server on both sites!!!

This article is Great :

Advanced Troubleshooting of Hyper-V Replica – Part 1

From <http://www.altaro.com/hyper-v/advanced-troubleshooting-of-hyper-v-replica-part-1/>

But it didn’t help me , when it comes to port 80 , he didn’t say what I have to do in such case.

My DR cluster is based on 3 Hyper-v Nodes , I was looking in the wrong place (my replica “DR” Cluster server) where I had to look into each Hyper-v Node and check the firewall:

So I got the resolution from here:

and Just I did run: netsh advfirewall set allprofiles state off , on each DR “replica” Node , and Yeeeeeeeeeeeess:

It’s working J

    Hello,
    the better way to resolv this issue is activating a TCP Port 80 in the firewall of the DR Broker

    • Hi,, you are right , in my case the firewall was managed through the Networking team on Hardware level , all our client environment servers are firewall disabled , if you rely on windows firewall , then you are 100% right IMHO
