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

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.
