following the tutorial to install a Hyper-V Core Server 2012/2016 (Install and configure RSAT on Windows 10 and make it a management workstation that connects to a Hyper-V 2016 core server in a workgroup) I got a problem when trying to edit the RSAT via DCOMCNFG as Admin: there are no "Properties" under MyComputer selectable. So i can't set the anonymous login as suggested (Steps 4-6). Any ideas how to fix ?
RSAT Client is running Win10 64 Pro 1809 in a Workgroup, tried also with Client in in AD - but same situation. EventMgr shows Error 10016 for "local activation" of COM ...
What OS is your Hyper-V? It could well be that 1809 is the reason for your problems. Do you also have this issue with the previous release? Unfortunately, Microsoft has a habit of changing things in a way that the previous configurations don't work anymore.
Are you sure you are looking in the right place? I just launched an 1809 and have no issues.
See the below screenshot
The Hyper-V core server version is 2012 (free version, couldn't get a free 2016). I just took a look at another 1803 client - same behaviour. If I look closer to your screenshot, there is no little red arrow pointing down in the "MyComputer" icon [probably this is the "normal state" ;-) ] ... on my screen there is a little red arrow - what does it mean?
Thanks for your help !

OK, so I started from scratch - forgot my 'wired' DCOM-Installation and : the new installed W10P client has no red arrow and everything works like shown in your tutorial :) One little point to observe: on the RSAT download site (in English) there is a warning not to install the package on aWin 10 - 1809, instead use of 'windows features' from system control should be made - this didn't work for me, I download/installed the package.
Thank you, Mariette !
