What is Hyper-V Manager
Hyper-V Manager is a console that helps you centrally manage Hyper-V hosts and virtual machines (VMs) at local and remote levels. As a result, administrators have simplified management of Hyper-V settings and services. Hyper-V Manager on Windows 10 allows you to create, delete, and configure virtual machines, virtual machine checkpoints, virtual switches and network adapters, virtual disks, etc.
This and much more will be discussed in this article.
Requirements for Hyper-V Manager
Hyper-V Manager was first available for just Windows Server 2008. Now, it is available for different versions of Windows that run the Hyper-V role. It’s available even in Windows 7 and is used as one of the remote server administration tools.
One of the requirements for using Hyper-V Manager is RSAT. When installing the Hyper-V role, Hyper-V Manager will be enabled by default.
All major features of Hyper-V Manager are available in its free version.
As mentioned above, using Hyper-V Manager, you can remotely manage Windows Server Core and Hyper-V Server without a graphical interface. To avoid problems, it is recommended that you manage the Hyper-V host with the same OS.
However, technologies do not stand still, and new versions of Windows Server 2016 and Windows 10 make it possible to manage computers running earlier versions of Windows Server (Windows 8, Windows Server 2012, Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012 R2).
Therefore, the installation and use of Hyper-V Manager is currently unencumbered.
