Another session for your user is blocked notifying Local Session Manager for 0 minutes

I have hyper-v VM running on my win-10 laptop. After some time, when I resume the VM after I was temporarily off, I get a message:

Another session for your user is blocked notifying Local Session Manager for 0 minutes so we are unable to log you in.

Do you want to force logoff that session to continue?

Why I'm getting this message? How do I continue in that session instead of forcing logoff?

    Hi,

    Thank you for your posting!

    Based on your descriptions, I guess you may have multiple user accounts and the error message indicated that more than two sessions (user accounts) were trying to log in your VM at the same time, or different users logged into your VM successively. So I may need more information for your issue:

    1) How did you log in to your VM, by Hyper-V Manager or by RDP?

    From my experience, you can only make one console connection to a single VM at a time. I believe this was an option in Virtual Server but is now enforced for security reasons for recent versions. So you may need to tell me more detailed information about your login environment.

    2) Is this the first time that you encounter this issue?

    3) If you have multiple users, what exactly did you do before this problem occurred? For instance, every time you switch users, will the next user log in like this? Or every time the previous user logs out, the next user logs in and prompts this?

    4) Can you click 'yes', close the session first and then try to restart your VM?

    Thank you for your support!

    Best regards
    Joan

    Hi,

    Thank you for your reply!

    Based on your descriptions, can you first go to event viewer>> Applications and Services Logs>> Microsoft>> Windows>> Hyper-V VMMS, to see if you have any other error messages or codes related to your issue. If not, then your issue may be concerned with your VM itself other than Hyper-V host.

    Thank you for your patience!

    Best regards
    Joan

    The same problem was with me ,,, I created VM without login password,
    But after creating a login password the problem was solved.
