Windows Admin Center - Virtual Machines Access Denied

Regular Visitor

I've got WAC installed as a Gateway on a server... created a local user called VMTest... Applied Role Based Access Control in WAC... then added the VMTest user to the Windows Admin Center Hyper-V Administrators group. VMTest also belongs to the local Users group.

When I connect to/manage that server as the VMTest user through WAC and click "Virtual Machines," I get errors indicating the user doesn't have access:


Failed to load This PC. Error: Exception: This operation was blocked by role based access control settings

I have tried adding them to the Hyper-V Administrators group and also the Windows Admin Center Readers group and still no joy.

I am not sure what else I am missing?

I have the exact same problem. It probably just doesn't work yet... Really slow progress with WAC the last months.
