Hyper-V Server 2008

I have just installed a fresh copy of Hyper-V ( the stand alone free version from Microsoft) I enabled all options and left it in workgroup. my PC I want to manage it is in a Domain. How can i manage the Hyper-v manager in that configuration.
I have made the local admin on hyper V the same user name and password as a local admin user on my local client.

I still get RPC service unavailable. Unable to establish communication between xxx and xxx

You need a piece of software called HVRemote. You can find all information here: http://archive.msdn.microsoft.com/HVRemote

You don't NEED HVRemote, but it's definitely useful and I also recommend it.  As you've now found out, managing the free Hyper-V is a BEAST.  While it's a great product and greater as it's free, it's a PITA when it comes to this.  I spent a good couple of hours one day learning what I had to do to get it to work (mostly) for me.  HOWEVEr, if you're going to run Windows Server 2012, then there's VERY LITTLE reason to run the free version - Server 2012 no longer has RAM limits so you can add the role to the server and be fine (yes, IDEALLY you want to leave as much system resources for the Hypervisor as possible, but considering the convenience of it, in most cases, you're far better off installing it with the Windows GUI.
