hyper v branch office scenario

Looking for a bit of advice here.
The plan is:

On a Branch Office (on its own Site) have one Core Server 2008 Box and Hyper V installed on it, then as the guests have 2 servers.

Guest 1 is an ISA 2006 on Server 2003, 32x (64x will not work).  I plan to setup a persistent VPN to our Cooperate Network using ISA tools and RRAS to do this.  
Guest 2 is to be Server 2008 Standard, as a DC, FRS,  DHCP and Print services.

The Branch office consists of 12 computers.

Hyper V requires it be on a Domain to manage, and so it would have to authenticate off of the DC on the branch office.

I have created the server setup above, but when I removed the core server to the new site, though the guests are running, I cannot manage hypervisor. The error I get back is " cannot connect to the RPC service on computer...."  I have not yet configured the persistent VPN on the ISA so the branch is orphaned at the moment.

The static address on the Core Server is setup for the Branch site too.
I can manage the 2 guests fine through RDP

Has anyone done a similar scenario?  Any suggestions?  Thanks in advance!

Thanks, I will do that and get back to you.  Though it is important to note that I have not setup VPN yet, but rather moved the server to a new site and with a wired laptop am not able to open hypervisor, RDP or run the remote firewall service via MMC.  I am going to check over again the core server settings.

Thanks, though off a bit, got me in the right direction.  turned out when I setup the nic for static using netsh, forgot to do the dns.   doh!
