Hyper-V RDP


You can connect to a Hyper-V instance using RDP through the Hyper-V server. There is no need to enable RDP on the Hyper-V instance, because Remote Desktop Manager features two levels of authentication.

Auto login to the Hyper-V instance is not supported.

The credentials provided are for the Hyper-V server (not the instance).


To use Hyper-V Remote Desktop Manager needs to be run as an administrator.
