Just encountered an error message as display below:-
a) Two nodes Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V Cluster (Host1, Host2)
b) Some VMs resides in Host1 and some in Host2.
c) We can “Connect” VM using Failover Cluster Manager snap-in but when try to view VM Settings, we received the above error message. This only happen when VM is reside in another host owner. Example:-
VM reside in Host1.
On Host2, use Failover Cluster Manager snap-in to view VM Settings. You will receive above error message.
On Host1, no issue reported.
d) Using another domain account to access to the server
This is how I resolved this issue:
a) Open azman.msc (Authorization Manager snap-in)
b) Open the InitialStore.xml which located in C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Hyper-V\InitialStore.xml
d) Add the user account that you login to access the Failover Cluster Manager snap-in the Role Assignments | Administrator
That should do the trick and you will not receive any error message when view VM Settings from Failover Cluster Manager snap-in.
