I have a core Hyper-V Server 2012 that I am remotely managing from a Windows 8 client. I can connect in Hyper-V Manager, Server Manager, and MMC. However, I don't understand how I can manage the physical hard drive (for ex, deleting vhdx files, creating folders, etc) from my Windows 8 client.

I tried to attach the remote share as follows:

q: \\MyServer\c$

It said command completed successfully, but I don't see the drive on my client's Explorer.

I can get to it in cmd.exe on the client but how can I manage it in a GUI?

explorer q:

Throws error:

Was Q mapped from cmd running as an admin or another user? – Bernie White Nov 4 '12 at 20:51
as administrator account and run as administrator. Posted exact error. (I can still "cd" to any directory on Q: via command line) – Vazgen Nov 4 '12 at 21:09
