I am currently attempting to install Microsoft's Virtual Machine Manager 2008 using an evaluation copy (try before i buy...) so i can manage a hyper-v server which is running server core.
currently my configuration stands as this
Host running Windows server 2008 x64 with Hyper-v RTM
Guest running windows server 2008 x64 with Virtual Machine Manager 2008.
Every time i attempt to do a refresh or anything in particular in VMM, it crashes and states
"the connection to the virtual machine manager localhost was lost or the virtual machine manager service has crashed. it has done this x times"
looking at my versions of software i have
vmm version 2.0.3444.0
hyper-v version 6.0.6001.18016 which i believe is rtm, as i have applied the kb patch to do so.
does anyone have a fix for this, please? it is rendering vmm useless.
edit: it also fairs when attempting a P2V conversion - i have also already tried a re-install.
