connect to hyper v, esxi using windows server manager

hi Experts,

We have a mixture of VMWare ESXI 5 and Hyper v Core. Is there a way where I can connect to hyper v and VMWare ESXI 5 using Windows server manager?

Not for Hyper-v. You need Hyper-v manager. However, it can be installed on any Windows 7 or 8 machine as part of RSAT. It's also part of any Windows Server 2008R2 or 2012

hi Hancocka,

in case you missed my question. My question is, is it possible to connect to VMware ESXi using hyper v Manager?
Hyper-V Manager is for Hyper-V, not VMware ESXi. so No.
I’ll have to admit I was really surprised in a negative way by Microsoft. It seems Windows 8 RSAT cannot manage Hyper-V on Windows Server 2008 R2 http://community.spiceworks.com/topic/271026-windows-8-hyper-v-manager-rsat-not-compatible-with-server-2008r2

I am sorry I misled you; you will have to install Windows 7 RSAT SP1 on a Windows 7 machine http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=7887
