We currently have several VMs running under Virtual Server 2005 SP1. I would like to move these to Hyper-V Server 2008 R2. However, we only have Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 machines at present - and that is unlikely to change in the time-frame I need.
All of the tools I have seen so far to manage Hyper-V Server require Vista, or Windows 7, or a full Server 2008 machine.
- Are there any tools that will work on Windows XP/Server 2003 to manage the Hyper-V Server?
- Can everything necessary (e.g. creating VMs/virtual hard drives, mounting .iso as virtual cd drive, starting/stopping vms, etc) be accomplished via the Hyper-V Server commandline?
- Where is a good reference for the Hyper-V commandline?
