Cannot login to VMM \ Server Core edition with other accounts

I recently built a VMM 2019 \ UR2 server on 2019 Core edition using SQL 2019. All works ok except i can only login to the console using the VMM service account.

If i try another account i added into the Administrator User Role group, i get

VMM is unable to perform this operation without a connection to a Virtual Machine Manager management server.

Use the Get-VMMServer cmdlet or the -VMMServer parameter to connect to a Virtual Machine Manager management server. For more information, type at the command prompt: Get-Help Get-VMMServer -detailed.

ID: 1615

I never had this issue before when i ran "desktop version" Server 2019, what am i missing from Core edition?

Firewall ports are controlled via GPO 8100 etc and the VM is under the same group but then again, it works perfectly fine under the service account credentials.

Anyone seen this before? Never installed VMM on core edition before, any tips?

Thanks

Hi,

There is a similar thread you can reference:

i've already looked at that thread, doesn't fix it.
I also set recently the "allow local logon" to the vmm service account, which wasn't set. That resolved another issue where vmm console was getting access denied on the vmm server itself.

but this issue of been able login as other users, is still not working. those users are also part of the local admin group on the server, just in case.

what i don't understand is the service account can login. i think this is a missing component when installed on core edition.
