Recover Virtual Machine Password(s) (Virtual PC Environment) __EXCLUSIVE__
If you can't connect to a Windows virtual machine (VM), you can reset your local administrator password or reset the Remote Desktop Services configuration. To reset the password, use either the Azure portal or the VM Access extension in Azure PowerShell. After you've signed in to the VM, reset the password for that local administrator.If you're using PowerShell, make sure that you have the latest PowerShell module installed and configured and are signed in to your Azure subscription. You can also perform these steps for VMs created with the classic deployment model.
If you still can't connect remotely to your virtual machine, see Troubleshoot Remote Desktop connections to a Windows-based Azure virtual machine. If you lose the connection to the Windows domain controller, you will need to restore it from a domain controller backup.
The Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) connection to your Windows-based Azure virtual machine (VM) can fail for various reasons, leaving you unable to access your VM. The issue can be with the Remote Desktop service on the VM, the network connection, or the Remote Desktop client on your host computer. This article guides you through some of the most common methods to resolve RDP connection issues.
Verify Network Security Group rules. Use IP flow verify to confirm if a rule in a Network Security Group is blocking traffic to or from a virtual machine. You can also review effective security group rules to ensure inbound "Allow" NSG rule exists and is prioritized for RDP port(default 3389). For more information, see Using Effective Security Rules to troubleshoot VM traffic flow.
Verify routing. Use Network Watcher's Next hop capability to confirm that a route isn't preventing traffic from being routed to or from a virtual machine. You can also review effective routes to see all effective routes for a network interface. For more information, see Using effective routes to troubleshoot VM traffic flow.
You can reset the password for any user on a managed node. This includes Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances; AWS IoT Greengrass core devices; and on-premises servers, edge devices, and virtual machines (VMs) that are managed by AWS Systems Manager. The password reset functionality is built on Session Manager, a capability of AWS Systems Manager. You can use this functionality to connect to managed nodes without opening inbound ports, maintaining bastion hosts, or managing SSH keys.
To use an on-premises server, edge device, or virtual machine (VM) with Systems Manager, create an IAM service role that gives Systems Manager permission to perform actions on your machines. For more information, see Create an IAM service role for a hybrid environment. (Session Manager support for on-premises servers and VMs is provided for the advanced-instances tier only. For more information, see Turning on the advanced-instances tier.)
The available virtual machines can be downloaded on Microsoft's website. Get the "MSEdge on Windows 10" virtual machine for your desired VM platform. We describe the setup with VMWare on macOs, Windows and Linux, but you can use whatever VM platform you are familiar with.
One of the ways to secure a VMware virtual machine is to enable the Trusted Platform Module and encrypt it with a password. Refer to the following article to know how to enable TPM on a virtual machine.
You will now see the dialog box with message Removing encryption from virtual machine. Depending upon the size of the virtual machine, this process may take around 2-5 minutes to decrypt the VM.
Hyper-V, like other server virtualization software, enables the virtualization of multiple operating systems all on the same server. But if you forgot the administrator password of your Windows virtual machine, it seems that there is no other way but to rebuild a new machine. It's a time-consuming task for most of us.
PCUnlocker can be a lifesaver for helping you reset lost or forgotten administrator password of any Windows virtual machine running in Hyper-V. Follow the simple steps below to unlock your virtual machine instantly.
Starting with Windows Server 2012 R2, Hyper-V supports two types of virtual machines: Generation 1 and Generation 2. A Generation 2 virtual machine uses UEFI instead of BIOS. If you forgot Hyper-V Gen2 VM password, you need to purchase PCUnlocker Enterprise which supports UEFI booting. Follow the same steps above and you can reset lost Windows passwords of Hyper-V Gen1 and Gen2 VMs easily.
