HYPER-V Management Tools to use it

HYPER-V has lot of free tools to manage, monitoring  or convert virtual machines. But how many hours do you spend to search for tools , test it and use it ? 

So today i would like to share in all IT Pro some of free tools that can use with HYPER-V for manage,monitoring or convert Virtual Macines. It very quick and simle to type and search in Google for hyperv tools and publish it here but i don't want it.

These tools i have use it in my day to day tasks of work or in my Lab Enviroment for tests.

Let's start.


Remote Server Administration Tools for HYPER-V

Remote Server Administration Tools (RSAT) enables IT administrators to remotely manage roles and features in Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2008, and Windows Server 2008 R2 from a computer that is running Windows 10, Windows 8.1, Windows 8, Windows 7.

RSAT include and HYPER-V Manager that can enable to use it from your Windows Workstations. Just to note that you must have the same version of OS to connect remotely in HYPER-V Role of a Server. For example if you have Windows Server 2012 you can manage remotely HYPER-V with Windows 8.1 or Windows 7. You can't manage HYPER-V Role from Windows 10 in Windows Server 2012.



Sysinternal tool  that can creates VHD versions of physical disks for use in Microsoft Hyper-V virtual machines (VMs). The difference between Disk2vhd and other physical-to-virtual tools is that you can run Disk2vhd on a system that’s online
