Hyper-V: lock the console of the VM at closing [Quick Guide]
When this option is enabled, this will ensure that you leave a console with a session open and unlocked, you never know…
There is no option directly in the Hyper-V Manager to set this up, nor in the settings of the VM. So, we’re going to have used PowerShell to perform this configuration.
II. configure the LockOnDisconnect option
open a PowerShell console, then type the following command, substituting the name of the VM by VM you want to target.
Set - VM "ADDS-01" - LockOnDisconnect On
otherwise, you can also activate this option on all virtual machines via a single command:
Get - VM | Set - VM - LockOnDisconnect On
for those who would like to if sure that setting is passed, you can list your VMs and the value of this option for each VM with the following command:
PS C:UsersAdministrateur > Get - VM | Name, LockOnDisconnect Name LockOnDisconnect - ft-ADDS-01 On WDS - 01 On LEADER-01 On
if it does not, it would seem that it is necessary to restart your hypervisor for changes are applied (or perhaps only the VM?). Here, this tutorial is already done but I think that this trick will serve you well! 🙂
