The beauty of Hyper-V in Server 2012 is that even if you install the CORE version (non-GUI) you can still manage it from the GUI with Server Manager on a Windows 2012 utility server or a Windows 8 desktop.

RSAT for 2012 - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh801900.aspx

However, everything in the GUI you can accomplish with PowerShell - but there isn't a set list of things you can do, you simply need to familiarize yourself with the power of PowerShell and the Cmdlets for Windows Server and Hyper-V.

What if I want to manage from a windows 7 PC?

Can I also connect to the host with the hyper V tools?

The RSAT tools for Server 2012 ONLY work on Windows 2012 and Windows 8, due to their shared kernel. My suggestion would be to create a server 2012 tools machine that you can RDP into for administration purposes..

Hi,

I now have the tools. My PC is not in their domain, but have a VPN to their network for DNS etc. I am putting in the domain admin credentials to connect to the server, but getting  a WinRM negotiate auth error?

Any ideas?

You probably need to do some configuration for trusted hosts. This server manager troubleshooting guide should point you in the right direction - http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/13444.windows-server-2012-server-manager-troubleshooting-guide-part-ii-troubleshoot-manageability-status-errors-in-server-manager.aspx

See this area:
Note: In Server Manager practical terms, Negotiate authentication means that Server Manager falls back to NTLM authentication (1) if you attempt to use Server Manager to manage a server that is in an untrusted domain, or that is in a workgroup, and (2) you provide explicit credentials to manage the target server. If you are using Server Manager to manage servers on which you must authenticate by using Negotiate authentication, you cannot disable NTLM in your server environment.

In this context, the client is defined as the computer from which you are managing by using Server Manager; this computer can be a server that is running Windows Server 2012, or a computer that is running Windows 8 with Remote Server Administration Tools installed.
The table below it has two different WinRM Default authentication error entries.
