Hyper-V Server 2016 not connecting to local host

Hi everyone,
I have an organization environment where we have 10 Hypervisors with Hyper-V server 2016 core installed and VM`s installed on top of Server 2016 cores.
My issue is that I have a virtual disk image (.vhdx) on my local computer that i am trying to import it on a hypervisor in order to create a VM on it.
When i use the "import virtual machine", it doesn`t let me to browse the local computer directory, it is giving the following fault: "You cannot browse the local file system when connecting to a remote computer from this user interface"

Also, I have a domain administrator account with all the privileges. Therefore, I don`t understand where is the issue. Please help. Thank you!

Thank you for your reply DSPatrick! I have tried to change the permissions (I added the Hypervisor computer object with full permissions) on the shared folder from my local computer which contains the virtual hard disk that I am trying to import into Hyper-V Manager. This action didn`t help.
Also, I am running Hyper-V Manager on Windows 10 domain computer with my domain admin account.
I was thinking maybe, it has to do something with Active directory group policies? I was trying to look on our domain controller for a group policy that would affect this, and i couldn`t find one.

Any help is appreciated! Happy holidays to everyone!

Seems likely to be a process permissions problem, try copying the VHD to server as first step.

It likely is a limitation. I'd try copying the VHD to server as a work-around.

This is the issue. I cannot copy the VHD to my Hyper-V Server 2016 core edition.
You are right, it looks like a limitation, but I don`t know where is the limitation.
I checked as well my services running and noticed a bunch of hyper-v services stopped. I tried to enable them and it`s not letting me as well. Please check the snapshot attached with my services. Thank you!47501-capture1.png
