Hyper-V unable to start or connect


Received this error when I was working with my Hyper-V servers. It’s easy to solve but the hos machine has to be rebooted and therefore all the VM machines will be unavailable for a while during the reboot.
Error:
[plain]Cannot connect to the virtual machine because the authentication certificate is expired or invalid. Would you like to try connecting again?[/plain]
This error is due to the VMMS certificate expiring. So just run the KB fix and the issue will be gone!
