Issue

The Hyper-V Virtual Machine Management Service is not configured to start automatically.

Impact

Virtual machines cannot be managed until the service is started.

Virtual machines that are running will continue to run. However, you will be unable to manage the virtualization environment, including your virtual machines, while the service is stopped.

Resolution

Use the Services snap-in or sc config command-line tool to reconfigure the service to start automatically.

By default, membership in the local Administrators group, or equivalent, is the minimum required to complete this procedure.

To reconfigure the service to start automatically using the Windows interface

  1. Open the Services snap-in. (Click Start, click in the Start Search box, type services.msc, and then press ENTER.)
  2. In the details pane, right-click Hyper-V Virtual Machine Management, and then click Properties.
  3. On the General tab, in Startup type, click Automatic.

To reconfigure the service to start automatically using the command line, type:
sc config vmms start=auto
