Hyper-V Server 2012... Wheres the client?

OK so coming from VMware and deciding to try the new Hyper-V Server 2012. got it all installed all set up and working nicely on the domain ect.

But where is the client? How do you create clusters and set up your VMs, HA ect ect... where is the control interface? Where is the VSphere equivalent??

It's called Hyper-V Manager but you need the Windows Server 2012 RSAT tools running on Win8 as far as I'm aware (you can't use older versions, I don't think).

Problem is the RSAT tools download for Win8 is still only the RC, not the final release (though I've heard rumor that the final release will be "any day now").

In the mean time, you can try a product like http://www.5nine.com/5nine-manager-for-hyper-v-product.aspx

Funny, I'm using Win8 and client Hyper-V with Hyper-V Manager installed and completely forgot about.  I'm annoyed/looking for Win8 RSAT tools to manage things like DNS, DHCP, AD, etc, from my workstation and I can't just yet.  THAT'S annoying (short of RDP into the server... which I actually usually do anyway).

However, PORTIONS of my answer are correct in that the 5nines tool can still be used directly on Hyper-V and if Hyper-V isn't joined to a domain, management (and connecting to it for management CAN be EXTREMELY difficult to configure.
