I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Additional information:  I changed a couple things.  First - I opened several ports in the firewall - ports needed for remote administration.  Second - i activated the Windows 2008 core.  Now when I connect using the remote client the screen is black.  (I am using the classic style)  So it looks like I have got a connection, but it isn't transmitting the desktop of the virtual server.

Even though you mentioned locally, I still want to confirm whether you are using the Client from the 2008 Server itself or remotely from a different machine. Please confirm. Yes, disabling the Firewall is a good idea to begin with.

Also, I found this. Not sure, if this will help.

Read this as well. This is not related but definitely interesting if you are interested in Virtualization.

I found another tool to administrate the virtual machines called Virtual Machine Control Client Plus.  This works great to control the machines.
