One of the big criticisms of Hyper-V to date is that if you install the Free edition “Hyper-V Server” you do the whole; “okay, now what?”
Oh, I need to manage it remotely? Oh, it is a royal pain if it is not domain joined?
Well, Microsoft heard you. And in Windows 8 there is a complete set of PowerShell cmdlets for Hyper-V to save your day.
You can get a video tour here: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/7944.hyper-v-cmdlets-in-windows-server-8.aspx
Or, you can add the Hyper-V cmdlets Feature to any Windows 8 system (Server and Client) and type;
Get-Command –Module Hyper-V
and see the vast array of cmdlets that you have. Everything you could do in the Hyper-V Manager and more.
