Adding Hyper-V Role on Server 2012 running as a VMware VM?

Hi, I am trying to install the Hyper-V role onto a Server 2012 server running as a VMware based VM.  Now before you chastise me for trying to divide by zero, I am only trying to gain access to the Hyper-V Management Tools, so that I can manage another Server 2012 Core backed physical host and its running VMs.  That is, I do not want the VMware backed Server VM to run Hyper-V VM on its self (IE it does not need to be a hypervisor), only to manage other remote ones.

Is this possible, or I am I not understanding how this is supposed to work?

Thanks

Yes, you can run Hyper-V as a VMware VM, see my EE Article

HOW TO: ENABLE and RUN Microsoft Hyper-V in a VMware vSphere Virtual Machine

But you can install the Hyper-V Manager tools on any workstation!

You just need the RSAT (Remote Server Administration Toolkit For Windows 8.1)

see here

or for Windows 7.0

and you'll also want this.
