2012 R2 hyper-V Server - How to use it RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have just installed Hyper-V Server 2012 R2.

    I thought I could work my way through using this product, but I can't figure it out.

    There is no GUI on the server, which is good, but for the life of me I can't firgure out how to remotely administer this thing.

    I have followed instructions to install the Hyper-V management tools on Windows 7 and 8, but they will not connect.

    I get a long laboriuos messages about permissions and HTTPS etc.

    Can anyone who understands this system please point me to a guide that explains how to start and access a fresh copy of this product, Hyper-V Server 2012 R2.

    I am not intending to connect to a domain at this point. I just want to install this stand alone Hyper-V sever and start setting VM's that I can access via RDP.
