It's been a while since the last post, hope this one can help someone out there.
In short I have been trying to manage my hyper v machines directly from my windows 7 machine. All you need to do is follow these easy steps.
Down and install microsoft kb update found here.
Once installed navigate to add remove windows features found at control panel, and expand the Remote Server Administration Tools, and select Hyper V Tools, shown below:
Click the ok button and Hyper-V remote adminsitration tool will be installed on the client computer, you are now able to connect to your Windows Server R2 installation running the Hyper-V management console.
Hope that this helped you, it sure helped me.
