Windows Remote Management -Could not start Virtual Disk Service (VDS)

Windows Remote Management -Could not start Virtual Disk Service (VDS)

Windows Remote Management -Could not start Virtual Disk Service (VDS) . Disk Management could not start Virtual Disk Service (VDS) on SERVER-NAME. This can happen if the remote computer does not support VDS, or if a connection cannot be established because it was blocked by Windows Firewall.

For additional information about diagnosing and correcting this problem, see Troubleshooting Disk Management in Disk Management Help.

To avoid this error, you need to follow some steps:-

  • Check Virtual Disk Service is started on BOTH the local and remote system
  • Add firewall exceptions on BOTH the local and remote system. VOILA! WORKING WITHOUT ANY ERRORS 🙂
  • Use “Server Manager” to connect remotely and access the disk management properties on the remote machine.
