I'm trialing two virtual server configurations (VMware and Hyper-V) on two different laptops to decide which is better for our office's use when I purchase a new server for running two Windows Server 08 Standard R2 guests on.
I can't work out how to manage (using my personal laptop) the Hyper-V server.
Here's some info that may help:
No it's not on a domain - it is going to be a Workgroup configuration.
I got Hyper-V 08 Server R2 insalled as the host, NOT Windows Server 08 R2.
I've got the Hyper-V manager installed on my laptop
I have enabled the firewall settings on the Hyper-V host console and created a user account that matches my laptop
What am I missing?
Also, on a separate note... with either ESXi or Hyper-V, if I'm going to run two Server 08 guests, does that mean I need to buy two Server 08 licenses?
