I have installed Hyper-V standalone on a server and configured server options using sconfig.cmd. I am now stuck as to how I create VMs, back them up etc.
Our environment has only XP pro workstations, 2003 servers & a 2008 server across a VPN. I was hoping I could use RSAT on the 2008 standard box to get at the Hyper-V management console but there are no options in the server admin and I can only locate install files from Microsoft for use with RSAT Vista SP1 [http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=9ff6e897-23ce-4a36-b7fc-d52065de9960&displaylang=en].
Can anyone she any light where I can go next with this, I have also tried CoreConfig & Hyper-V Management Console but neither allows for creation of VMs. Guess my otpions are:
1 - Buy Windows 7 Ultimate or Vista to use RSAT
2 - Buy Windows server 2008 enterprise to use RSAT
3 - Find a version of RSAT that works on Windows 2008 Standard
Any advice appreciated, haven't really got the money for any more upgrades.
