How do I configure Hyper-V Server 2008 R2 Failover cluster capabilities? Can I use mmc from a vista system or do I have to use Powershell?

I installed RSAT for Windows Vista, but when I try to activate the cluster on the Hyper-V Server machine it says that it only works with Windows Server 2008 Enterprise or Datacenter. I think I need a newer version of RSAT, but I can't find one. – carles Jan 22 '10 at 15:56
Do you have access to the machines as administrator? – Francois Wolmarans Jan 22 '10 at 18:19
Yes, I own the domain admin account and I'm the machine admin... – carles Jan 23 '10 at 7:16

I ended up buying a Windows 7 licence...
