windows 8.1 client and Hyper V 2012 R2

Dear Experts,

I have windows 8.1 laptop and added the MMC snap-in for Hyper V. This laptop is added to a domain related to my work from before. I have a HyperV 2012 R2 which I installed on server but I want to keep it in a workgroup only. I created an account on it for remote management and it is enabled. But I am not sure from the client how to access it . I am having issue running it with the account I have provided.

Please help as I was in windows 7 I went all the way upgrading my windows just to remote to this hyper v 2012 server.

Thanks,

John Howard's HVRemote. Download, follow the instructions for Domain RSAT/Hyper-V Workgroup.

It works and it's simple.

An alternate to that is to run your user account as Standard User so that Run As Admin prompts for credentials. Or, force UAC into credentials mode instead of the Continue button (this is a good practice for local admin users).
