How to manage Hyper-v (Core installation) from another Windows Server 2008 R2?

I am struggling with an issue after we moved one of our viritual server to another office.
Before I managed our viritual servers from my personal computer. It was from my windows 7 computer (in a domain), to the viritual server which was in a workgroup and still is.

Now that we have moved it to a different location, I can't manage this server from my personal computer. So I was hoping I could use one of our other server at that office who got the Hyper-V Manager installed. This server is in a domain. I get this error: Error Hyper-V
I am very familier with the HVRemote tool, and I have used it before and I have tried to use it now aswell. But it keeps complaining about that server mode = server and not client.

My question is, how can I manage my Hyper-v Core server from another Windows Server 2008 using the Hyper-V Manager tool?

    Thank you for the links. It was one step I missed out.

    on my viritual server, the user 'jonas' was not an administrator.
    Added jonas as an administrator on my viritual server, and I can now manage my server.
