    you can't use a windows xp machine with the hyper v management console (well you couldn't when i looked) but yes you can install the software on any vista/win 7 machine

    I know you are Hyper-V, but on Citrixs we use Citrix XenCentre where you can console or Remote Desktop within the XenCentre or you can use the traditional Remote Desktop to the server which you can do from any machine but you need to have the XenCenter installed on your PC to use the XenCentre way.

    to manage a hyperv core server you need to make changes to the firewall on teh box itself via a command prompt. After that and ip addresses etc are assigned to it you manage it using rsat on a vista / win7 / server 08/08r2 pc using the hyperv mmc console then once you have the os installed its just easier to rdp in

    I'm sure that'll all make perfect sense once I start doing it, thanks.

    That was a remote desktop of a remote desktop on a 11" laptop screen. So nothing much was going to fit

    Was that just to see how big an image you could have in a post? It's twice the width of this box

    Well, it was because I thought you would want to see it! I have attatched it to it instead!

    Ah that's better - having read some of the other threads I now realise that uploading images was an issue. Thanks, I don't/won't have that many servers but it looks nice and easy. Does the tree list work in the same way as a filer tree, as in drill down through the shares, or enables a log in to the selected server?

    You got enough Hosts and VMs in that Citrix?! Mine will look rubbish when I get mine all done, then again maybe I will spread them out even more once I get going, I'm starting to think maybe I should have split Exchange 2010 up into all its little bits one per VM..... (I can do that on the final new LAN rather than the old boged one)

    Still got enough resources on the hosts for a few more vms! . Splitting up your exchange servers is the best way to do it if you can using VMS - we have a hub transport server, client access server and two mailbox servers! .

    Yes so I am told, and you just did the 2007 to 2010 upgrade last week as well
