    Manage remote Hyper-V machine

    I have 2 win 10 pro and considering this setup:

    Desktop with hyper-v to tun virtual machine
    laptop with hyper-v management

    what i can now achieve is connect to the desktop with RDP then launch
    hyper-v management in the desktop; using the laptop hyper-v management
    would be more convenient but i cannot connect to the desktop hyper-v
    from the laptop (i.e. i cannot browse the VM list, start/stop etc.)

    is it possible to connect to remote hyper-v service using hyper-v management only with win 10 pro?
    it seems to me that it can only be done with a server infrastructure

    Certainly it is possible. Try this Connecting Hyper-V Manager to another PC - Windows 10 Forums

    It isn't as simple as if you are connected to a domain but it works. I do exactly the same.

    Thanks for the info lx07.

    Is there any security risk applying your procedure? it feels more an hack than
    an actual windows feature ... (?)

    I'm not sure what you mean by hack - it is a way to do what you want if you aren't on a domain - it is only standard methods.

    If someone compromised one of your computers they would have access to the other (because you store the password) but if one of your computers is compromised that is bad enough not to worry about the other (for me anyway).

    Other than that I don't think it is a risk particularly, no.

    The procedure gives error:

    winrm set winrm/config/client @{TrustedHosts="MYPC"}

    Error: Invalid use of command line. Type "winrm -?" for help.

    EDIT: it works, used is cmd shell

    it is not clear what to apply to the server and to the client, I understand you use
    both as server/client but i have a server and a distinct client ...
