|Summary||0008361: Permission Issues in NetworkManager (only in the Hyper-V Version)|
I encountered a bug in the Hyper-V version of Kali Linux where I was unable to change network connections using NetworkManager. To address this issue, I made some modifications to the polkit-1 configuration files, which resolved the problem. However, I would like to report this bug to ensure that it is addressed and resolved in future releases.

Hello, and sorry for the late reply! Why do you need to modify the network connections? In the Hyper-V VM, there's only a ethernet card I believe (no wifi), so there's not much to configure, right?
I did a bit research, it seems that this default configuration is actually what we want. In Hyper-V, you're connected with the VM over xrdp, ie. over the network. If you can modify network settings, it becomes very easy to shoot yourself in the foot. You can easily disable the network, thus closing the xrdp link, and then you can't interact with the VM anymore. I didn't test that myself, but it's my understanding.
