Q: I’d like to install the Hyper-V MMC on Windows Server 2008 to remotely manage another Hyper-V System. How do I do this? Can I do this on Windows Server 2008 x64 and x86 Editions?

A: Yes. This solution works for both Windows Server 2008 x64 and x86 Standard, Enterprise and Datacenter Editions.

Here are the steps:

1. Launch Server Manage from the Start Menu

2. Click Add Features

3. Under Remote Server Administration Tools>Role Administration Tools>

a. Enable Hyper-V Tools and click Next.

4. Click Install.

5. After the reboot, go to Administrative Tools in the Start Menu and you will see the Hyper-V Manager.
