ASRDeploymentPlanner - Profile mode - could not to connect to Host

Running the ASRDeploymentPlanner in profile mode on Hyper-V Host, I get error:

PS C:\Users\inbalsilis\new\ASRDeploymentPlanner-v2.52 (3)\ASRDeploymentPlanner> .\ASRDeploymentPlanner.exe -Operation StartProfiling -virtualization Hyper-V -Directory "C:\Users\inbalsilis\new\ASRDeploymentPlanner-v2.52 (3)\ASRDeploymentPlanner\ProfiledData" -VMListFile "C:\Users\inbal\new\ASRDeploymentPlanner-v2.52 (3)\ASRDeploymentPlanner\ProfiledData\VMList.txt" -NoOfMinutesToProfile 60 -User Contoso\HyperVUser1 -StorageAccountName asrspfarm1 -StorageAccountKey Eby8vdM02xNOcqFlqUwJPLlmEtlCDXJ1OUzFT50uSRZ6IFsuFq2UVErCz4I6tq/K1SZFPTOtr/KBHBeksoGMGw==

VM details stored in file C:\Users\inbal\new\ASRDeploymentPlanner-v2.52 (3)\ASRDeploymentPlanner\ProfiledData\VMdetailList.xml.

Note that throughout estimation will be done after profiling is completed. To include throughput details in the report generation before profiling is over, run the GetThroughput operation separately from another command line console.

Profiling start time = 4/17/2022 8:16:00 AM and profiling end time = 4/17/2022 9:16:00 AM. The tool will take additional time to process the profiled data.

Profiling started. Profiling will run for 0.04 days.

[Don't close this session/console. Closing this session/console will stop the profiling]

This seems to be some permission issue to access host.
Is the firewall disabled on the machine?
Can you check if the host is accessible from machine where planner is running?
