So, you’ve successfully migrated a few Virtual Servers Guests to Windows Server 2008 running Hyper-V, but now you want to manage the Hyper-V Server remotely from another Windows Server 2008 or Vista box. Is it possible? Today at work I had that very question, and I found it is possible and easy to configure a Windows Vista Client OR a Windows Server 2008 box to remotely manage a Microsoft Hyper-V Server.
Below are the steps for enabling remote management on a Windows Vista Client. Checkout this Article if you want the Step-by-step from a Windows Server 2008 box.
