I have Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2008 R2 installed on a sever in a Data Center and I want to administer it with PowerShell commands.
I have remote access to that server.

What are the commands for:

- creating a new Virtual Machine, that will use an existing Virtual Hard Disk

- Strating/Stoping the Virtual Machine?

You can use the Powershell management library for Hyper-V (Codeplex):

For example use Start-VM or stop-VM cmdLet to start/stop a VM.
