remotely administering a Hyper-V 2008 R2 server

I performed a vanilla install of the free downloadable Hyper-V server R2, and enabled remote administration from the menus. I then installed the hyper-v manager from the server support tools for Win7. I know what the machines IP address is and can RDP into it and see the command prompt, but I cant connect to it via the hyper-v manager on my Win7 box. it acts as though it cant even see it. how do I connect to it?

If your server and computer is both member of the same domain it should work.

Its in workgroup mode at the moment. I tried to use the hvremote.wsf script to enable access but that didnt seem to do anything.

You can login to the HYPER-V and join it to the domain from the text based menu.
