Windows 10 Hyper-V Management

Q: I'm using Windows 10 Hyper-V Manager with an older Hyper-V server, but using alternate credentials isn't working; why not?

A: The new Hyper-V Manager in Windows 10 has several nice features, including the ability to manage down-level Hyper-V servers such as Windows Server 2012. In addition, it provides the ability to use alternate credentials, which is possible because of its shift to WS-MAN for configuration. However, the alternate credential capability is only for Windows 10 instances; alternate credentials can't be used with older Hyper-V servers that don't use WS-MAN.
