    Hyper-V on Windows Server Core 2008

    Hi,

    I am curious if anyone out there has successfully implemented Hyper-V on a
    Windows Server Core 2008 platform (x64 of course)?

    I have gotten as far as enabling the Hyper-V role in Server Core and was
    aslo able to get as far as downloading and insalling the remote management
    tool for Vista SP1 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/949758). the tool opens
    and appears to work right up until the point that I try to create a new VM at
    which time the New Virtual Machine Wizard opens, but then returns an error
    stating: Loading Wizard Page failed.

    I guess I need to read up more on this, but am finding it very difficult to
    find more info on this particular combination (Server Core with Hyper-V).
    any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance!

    Darby,

    Installing the remote management tools is tricky, even with a full
    install of Server 2008. John Howard has a series of articles which covers
    most of the problems.
