Managing Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V from Windows 8.1

In the past we have always required that you use Hyper-V Manager on the same version of Windows as the version of Windows that you are using to run Hyper-V (i.e. Use Windows 7 to manage Windows Server 2008 R2, use Windows 8 to manage Windows Server 2012). But we have made a change with Windows 8.1.

You can use Hyper-V manager on Windows 8.1 (or on Windows Server 2012 R2) to manage either Windows Server 2012 R2 or Windows Server 2012. In fact, you can connect to both at the same time if you want to.

What happens is that when you connect to a new instance of Hyper-V, we check to see what the version is that we are connecting to. If it is Windows 8 / Windows Server 2012 we will load the UI for that version of Hyper-V. If it is Windows 8.1 / Windows Server 2012 R2 we will load the UI for that version of Hyper-V.
