Managing Hyper-V from Windows 7

Managing Hyper-V from Windows 7

  • Comments 8

If you have installed the Windows 7 beta and want to use it to manage Hyper-V you will need to install the Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 7 beta.  These can be downloaded from here:

Once you have installed them you will need to still setup your client and server appropriately (I recommend using HVRemote).  One nice thing though is that the Windows 7 Hyper-V mangement UI can be used to manage both Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 R2 beta installations of Hyper-V.

Cheers,

  • Is it possible to install the admin console for SCVMM 08 in Windows 7?

  • Thanks for this info Ben!  Do you know if these will be included with Windows 7 when it is shipped?

  • Damon Gross -

    I do not know how to install it - but I know if you have it installed on Vista and then upgrade to Windows 7 - it will continue to work.

    Brad S -

    To be honest - I do not know :-)

    I will ask around.

    Cheers,

    Ben

  • Just a crazy idea but is there anyway we can run Hyper-V on Windows 7?

  • You can run Hyper-V on Windows Server 2008 R2, which is the server equivalent of Win7
