Bryon over at the Windows Server Division blog pointed out a certificate error that can occur for those of you running WS08 Hyper-V and connect using vmconnect. The cert error results in the inability to start or connect to VMs running on WS08 Hyper-V or MS Hyper-V Server 2008.

Here's an excerpt:

Symptoms and resolution:

§  You may be unable to start or connect to virtual machines running on Windows Server 2008 or Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2008. This occurs when connecting using vmconnect.  Connections made using Remote Desktop won't be affected.

§  KB Article 967902 has been created that details the symptoms and resolution.  This KB article provides a direct link to download the quickfix to resolve this error.

Important Notes:

§  Though this error may occur, the Hyper-V service will continue to operate.   Neither the Hyper-V host nor the running virtual machines will go offline.

§  It is not expected that this issue can be exploited for malicious purposes.

§  Customers running Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V beta won’t experience this error.
