Hyper V screen problem
I have a strange problem with one of my virtual servers. Its installed on a 2008R2 core server running Hyper V and when opening the server from the Hyper-V Manager I can only see about quarter of the screen (See attached). I can't expand the screen size and the session captures my mouse (having to press crtl+alt+left cross to release), all other servers installed work fine and the mouse doesn't get captured to the screen but works. I can't see any settings on this problem server that are different to the others (5 other Virtual servers work fine!) Under file settings it says integration services are installed so I don't think that is the problem. It bound to be a silly little setting somewhere thats causing it but I can't find it can anyone help?

i think its been used on a screen with a higher res and the last user set it to say 1280x1024 and you screen is 800x600 say if you log in and change the res all should be well

Right I managed to login and change the res so I can see the whole screen now but the mouse still captures within the session having to press crtl+alt+left cross to release (Which it doesn't on the other VM's, you can just use the mouse within the window without capturing). It wouldn't be a massive problem but once the mouse is captured it disappears on the screen and you can't see it until you release with crtl+alt+left cross how do you disable this setting?

do you need to reinstall the intergtation tools?

I just enable RDP and just use that to manage my virtual servers in Hyper V. Its a lot easier, and copy+paste works, which doesnt when you are just working in console view.
