I found this really cool Vista Gadget for Hyper -V monitoring and Administration., Mindre.net: Hyper-V Monitor Gadget for Windows Sidebar.
So from this gadget you can see what’s your hyper-v server is doing.
a note from the author: PS: The gadget uses WMI to connect to the server so the user might need to follow John Howard’s guide remote WMI access (Step 5) on both the client and the Hyper-V server.
If you have installed and configured the Hyper-V remote monitor (like me) this would be a painless install and connect. 😀
