HyperV on Windows 10 Pro Error:An Error Occurred while attempting to connect to server "x-x" Check that the Virtual Machine Management service is running and that you are authorized to connect to the server.

Hyper-V Manager Error: An Error Occurred while attempting to connect to server "x-x" Check that the Virtual Machine Management service is running and that you are authorized to connect to the server. 

As you can see in below image and you can also check that on the left and side under Hyper-V Manager there is no server listed. 
As you have installed HyperV already and I believe that you have a brief understanding of what you trying to do, so I am not going to share much about the introduction of Hyper-V. 

So We will jump to the resolution of above. 

Just to add on to the above error I will also inform you that if you are going to select the option for HyperV Quick Create you will get the following in that case. Which will simply say Error: Not Found. 

To fix this issue, I had been to many forums. Some of the forums and blogs suggested a solution that one can try to uninstall windows feature and reinstall it and some PowerShell commands. 
If that could have worked for you then you should have stopped your search and there was no need to search further and come to my blog. 
And definitely, understanding that my blog is not so popular so far I can blindly believe that if your search has taken you to my blog that means you have already checked the possible resolutions and when you are not able to resolve it you are here at my blog post. 
So I will ensure if you have come so far then I will send you back happy!
So here is the fix: 
1: In Cortana, search box type in "WinVer" command and I bet it should be 1803 fall creator update. 
2: Now go to Windows feature and disable/uninstall Hyper V completely from there, restart the computer. 
3: Update windows to 1809.
4: Install Hyper-V again from Windows Feature after the windows update. 
Now, your issue is resolved. 
Just in case it is still not working, Let me know I tried something else in between which just made it worked like charm, but as of now I don't think that step is needed so please just proceed with above steps and for further support do feel free to write in comments below. 
I really appreciate you writing and raising your concern. 
I really don't care about likes and share, my belly is already stuffed to fullest. :) Thanks to God.

  1. Hi,

    I tried your fix on my windows 10 pro ver 1809 and it still doesn't work. Keep getting same error first one you posted at the top. Sick and tired going to forums everywhere and trying almost everything presented there, no luck. Can you please help me get over this error? Thanks

    1. Hi jugnu,

      Thanks for an update, It's been a long time I had not seen this issue and I am also stuck into something else I will try to find a fix in my free time and get back to you. If you are okay we can do remote and get it resolved as well in some common free time.
      Regards,
      Ashish
