Installing Hyper-V Manager on Windows7

Just in case you aren’t aware, if you want to remotely access a Hyper-V virtual machine during startup or shutdown (you can RDP when it’s running of course), you’ll need to install Hyper-V Manager on an appropriate client.

The process is a little opaque, what you actually need to install is the Remote Server Admin Toolkit for Windows7 from here and then follow the instructions to enable Hyper-V Manager in Control Panel/Programs.

This isn’t the whole story though, you also need access rights between client and (Hyper-V) server, and there is a great tool, HVremote, to fix this.
