Unable to Connect to Guest Console (Virtual Machine Connection) via Hyper-V Console

I have a 2 node HA Hyper-V cluster running the full OS (not Core).  While logged into the physical node with a domain admin account, i open the Hyper-V console and look at my Guest VMs i can see the status in the preview windows.  If i try to open a connection to the guest (Virtual Machine Connection) after about 1-2 min i get the following error messages:
“Cannot connect to the virtual machine.  Try to connect again.  If the problem persists, contact your systems administrator.”

Solution related to DNS & Hosts file. The host machine you are on must be able to resolve its host name to its own ip address.

Simpl add       [hostname]

to the c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts file of the host System.
