Allowing non-Administrators to control Hyper-V–Updated

A long time ago, I did a post about how to allow non-Administrative users to control Hyper-V.  Then I did a post that showed you how to script this whole configuration.  Finally, I did a post that showed you how to setup a “Hyper-V Administrators” group to make the whole process easier.

Well, time has passed and we have made things significantly easier for you here.

With Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2012 R2 you will now find that the Hyper-V Administrators group is already present:


All you need to do these days is to add your user account to the Hyper-V Administrators account, and you can do everything with Hyper-V without having to be a local administrator on the system.
