Setting up Hyper-V on Windows Server 2012
So as a recap we’ve now completed the following:
- Windows Server 2012 Core install
- Windows Server 2012 remote management using Server Manager on Windows 8
- Setup your storage (choices on pools, spaces etc)
Now we’re going to setup Hyper-V so you can remotely manage Hyper-V using Hyper-V Manager. Again, the complication is that you’re in a workgroup.
I would tell you that this is hard but some bright person at Microsoft figured out that there was a way to make it easy to manage Hyper-V in a workgroup – they created hvremote. You can find hvremote on the Microsoft MSDN website.
I followed the 10 second guide and it worked perfectly, so rather than look that gift horse in the mouth I moved on. If you want to know what hvremote is doing, then you’ll find a lot of details on the MSDN site.
