Error Failed to Create or Launch Virtual Machine Settings dialog for Virtual Machine Using Failover Cluster Manager snap-in.


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.
