    What are your network settings?

    What are your virtual switch settings too.

    Both servers are on the same subnet.

    They're on the IP address range of 192.168.20.1 - 192.168.20.254

    In my virtual switch settings, I have configured only an External Switch with one NIC that is active in both boxes.

    Well, if there is communication between the servers (assuming you can ping one from the other?) and you have tested that the local accounts can access each other (maybe by viewing a share on each box?) i'm running out of ideas.

    Can you remotely view the disk manager and or event viewer from the opposing box?

    I can ping from one host to another. I can remotely access and view the disk management, event viewer et al. I just don't understand why this stupid replication thing does not work, and why it says 'load failed' everytime you launch Hyper-V Settings!!!!

    Arrgggghhh. Bloody frustrating.

    Can you talk me through your steps of setting up the free Hyper V edition? Obviously the condensed version in numbered steps, if you don't mind, that is

    I just wanna see if I've done anything wrong with my set up.

    All things seem to be correct, including RPC etc.

    You could try reinstalling the roles, including the management role.

    Is this all set up in a win 8 environment? I.e. Win 8 + hyper V + 2012 VM's.

    If so I think you may find that this is the problem as I don't think that replication is supported in this configuration.

    Hi,
    I managed to recreate the issue on my vms by removing the folder 'replication' on one of the servers. If you check the path for stored replication harddrives has the folder 'replication' been created already?

    I did exactly what was shown in the video but I still get the same error. What build version are you running?

    Mine is: 6.2.9200 Build 9200

    No. This is a Hyper-V 2012 Core running on a server. I use Win 8 to manage my VMs through the Hyper-V Server console.

    'Cause I can't enable Replication on the server or on any of my VMs, I presume the replication folder would not be created? If this isn't the case, where is the folder located?

    C:\users\public\Documents\hyper-v\replication\ on one of my systems, the other I just manually created e:\replication and pointed it to it under 'authorization and storage'. For completion I use kerberos

    I believe the replication folder is only created when you enabled replication, which I am unable to do so.

    As an update, I installed Windows Server 2012 (the full edition) and I can enable replica through the GUI and without the GUI.

    It seems like Hyper V 2012 (the freebie) doesn't support replication at all. Not at all impressed! Replica was going to be a huge deal breaker for me without having to purchase an additional license.

    I finally got this working in the end!!!!!!!

    You won't believe what it was - there was a problem with the Windows 8 OS. Actually, installing any version of 8.0 would exhibit the problem I was having so by installing 8.1 allowed me to enable Replication. Yippee!
