Screencast: How to Manage Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2008 Remotely from Windows Vista – Workgroup Scenario

In this Screencast, we will demonstrate how to manage Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2008 remotely in a Workgroup configuration. There are many cases when you will prefer to run the free Hyper-V server as a stand-alone machine or in a workgroup instead of in a domain. When you try to connect and manage remotely the Hyper-V machine, you are getting errors like:
● “You do not have the required permissions to complete this task. Contact the administrator of the authorization policy for this computer”
● “An error occurred while attempting to connect to server. Check that the Virtual Machine Management service is running and that you are authorized to connect to the server”
● “RPC server unavailable. Unable to establish communication between …”

We have already demonstrated how to install and configure Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2008 in the following Step-by-Step Screencast.
If you are using the Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2008 as a member of a Domain, then managing it remotely is performed as demonstrated in How to Manage Hyper-V RTM on Server Core from Windows Vista.

The scenario when you are using and managing Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2008 remotely in a workgroup requires special attention and configuration on both sides – the managed Server and the managing Client. In the following Step-by-Step Screencast, you will see how to manage remotely a Hyper-V server in a Workgroup environment. For demonstration purposes the Hyper-V server is a member of HYPERGROUP workgroup and the managing workstation is a member of a different workgroup – VISTAGROUP. If you need to manage remotely Hyper-V server, member of workgroup, from a machine which is a member of a Domain, you have to logon with a local machine account.

For your convenience you can download the text file, with the commands, necessary to type in command prompt on the server and on the client.
