Remote Server Administration Tools (RSAT)

In order to manage Hyper V host from client computer, you can download

RSAT for Windows 7

Supported Client operating system:-
Enterprise, Professional, or Ultimate editions of Windows 7

Both x86 and x64 are included with Hyper V snap-in.

RSAT for Windows Vista (With Hyper V snap in) - only x64

Supported Client operating system:-
Windows Vista Business 64-bit edition; Windows Vista Enterprise 64-bit edition; Windows Vista Ultimate 64-bit edition Service Pack 1 (SP1) or later versions of Windows Vista Service Packs is required

I can't locate Hyper V Snap-in for x86 Windows Vista operating system.

For my testing environment, i have tested that you can use RSAT on Vista client computer to manage Hyper V R2. No problem encounter even server and client is running different Hyper V MMC version.

p/s: Using vista RSAT to manage R2 is not supported by Microsoft.
