Hyper-V 2016 Server using Windows Admin Center and Hyper-V Manager on Win 10

Reset RAID: remove logical drives and recreate. 1 x 500GB, 1x 1.3 TB
DL Install Hyper-V 2016 server using iLO on a 3ogb partition
Run all updates on hyper-v server
Create other partitions during disk setup such as 800gb VM Storage and 1TB Disk Storage

Win 10 1803 Enterprise on Virtualbox
Guest Additions/Tools
Hyper-V management tools feature (ps cmd:add-windowsfeature rsat-hyper-v-tools)
also enable the Hyper-V services feature under Hyper-V Platform
Windows Admin Center
PS Core 6.1.0 Preview 2

Hyper-V Hostname: HVS2016Core
Setup IP Configuration and Remote enabled, allow ping to server

Ping server ip from win 10 host
Connect using rdp
If unable to connect and you created a new local admin on the server. Make sure you login to the server with this account in order to create a new profile. In my case I created a account iq and then used this same account on my Win 10 client.

Run the following commands to enable access in workgroup environment:
Create fw rules for private network zones: Exit to command line, run powershell, type: enable-psremoting
To allow remote access on public zones enable firewall rules for CredSSP and WinRM: Enable-WSManCredSSP -Role server

Run the following on the Win10 host:

Open pwsh as admin

Set-Item WSMan:\localhost\Client\TrustedHosts -Value "fqdn-of-hyper-v-host"
Enable-WSManCredSSP -Role client -DelegateComputer "fqdn-of-hyper-v-host" Replace fqdn with hostname: hvs2016 and without ""

Run the following cmds as PS Admin:
cmdkey /add:hvs2016 /user:Administrator /pass
cmdkey /add:hvs2016 /user:iq /pass
cmdkey /add: /user:Administrator /pass
cmdkey /add: /user:iq /pass

open notepad as admin and edit hosts file
path: C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc

add line: hvs2016 #Hyper-v 2016 Server

Check services.msc to see if Hyper-V Virtual Machine Management is running
You might also need to configure the following group policy:

  • Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > System > Credentials Delegation > Allow delegating fresh credentials with NTLM-only server authentication
  • Click Enable and add wsman/fqdn-of-hyper-v-host.

Run Hyper-V Manager – you should now be able to connect with FQDN and IP Address.

Run Windows Admin Center > Connect to server hvs2016
Error with credentials so run the following as PS Admin:
View trusted hosts: winrm get winrm/config/client
Allow all as trusted: Set-Item wsman:localhost\client\trustedhosts -value *

This should now allow you to connect to the Hyper-V 2016 server in Windows Admin Center

To Upload ISOs to local drive of Hyper-V Server:
Run this command on the console of hyper-v server:
netsh advfirewall firewall set rule group=”File and Printer Sharing” new enable=Yes

Click on the network icon in explorer on Win 10 host then click enable file sharing for private networks on the top yellow bar.
You should now be able to browse the server path in explorer: \\hvs2016\d$

You can then disable the firewall rule on the server if required:
netsh advfirewall firewall set rule group=”File and Printer Sharing” new enable=No

Install Server2016 and AD DS/DNS
Set virtual switch to internal then map both shares on DC, D$ and E$ from the Host Hyper-V Server
To allow comms between Sccm server and DC need to use the Internet vswitch which is external?

Connect to Windows share from Mint local host. In Cinnamon enter the following details:
If this fails add the hostname to the linux hosts file

Right click the folder on the left of cinnamon and click add bookmark to save in bookmarks list.
