Before continuing to set up your environment please make sure that Hyper-V is installed and that the role is enabled on your Windows Server machine.

Figure 1: Windows 2008 Server Manager

A guest operating system (like Windows) must be created on the Hyper-V server which features an RDP server.

Important:

  • The guest name must be equal to the computer name.
  • The use of fixed IPs on the guest operating systems is preferred.

After the guest OS installation is complete make sure that the RDP server is started. To confirm that the server is running, launch a Terminal Server client on the host machine (the Hyper-V server) and connect to the guest operating system using the computer name (of the guest OS) and the RDP port (default RDP port is 3389).
