Computer Management -> Action -> Connect to another computer... -> Your Hyper-V host
Exactly - what he's not telling you is that Computer Management is a completely different tool. It's the Windows tool.
If you came from ESXi or even XS, you're in for some surprises. Unlike ESXi and XS, there is no single pane of glass to see all of the things related to Hyper-V. Instead you have to manage all the components the exact same way you would a normal server. Computer Management handles a lot of them, but not all. For example, you can't look at Device Manager that way anymore - MS removed remote access a bit ago.
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH... yes. Shit. LOL
yeah - this is why I #$#%^@ hate Hyper-V :)
ugh.. I wish I knew this before.. Maybe I'll just use the free version of ESXi instead..
no - you shouldn't do that. If you bail on Hyper-V, you should look at KVM instead, so you aren't leaving often needed/desired feature that are free in KVM and Hyper-V and cost a ton in ESXi.
well I do want to gain some experience with Hyper-V so maybe I'll stick it out.. I just need to find a centralized guide on this or something.. The way to do things so far has been murky and illusive.. Part of the problem may be that I'm so used to VMware with ESXi and vSphere.
it covers all the things to get all the pieces working.
It assumes an Active Directory though.
Oh nice! I will comb thru this. And I do have AD running here. Thanks!
You will find tons of guides here on ML.
I think this has become my favorite forum. Much nicer than reddit, less BS than Spiceworks.. everyone is nice and thorough and we have SAM ruling with an iron fist ;)
