Managing Hyper-V server from Windows 7

by ron on February 23, 2009

I’ve been running Windows 7 since the day beta 1 was released.

Although I’ve been very happy so far with Windows 7, it was frustrating not being able to manage Hyper-V natively.  The Hyper-V management tools which you can download from the Microsoft site are built for Windows Vista, and won’t install on Winodws 7.

Microsoft have now released a beta of the Remote Admin Tools for Windows 7.

All you need to do is:

  1. Download the Remote Admin Tools for Windows 7
  2. Install it
  3. Go to: Control Panel => Programs and Features => Turn Windows features on or off
  4. Go to: Remote Server Administration Tools => Role Administration Tools => Hyper-V Tools

Once you’ve done that, you’ll find the Hyper-V Manager in your local Admin Tools in Windows 7.
