So I was tinkering around with Hyper-V, and thought I’d give this a go.
Server Core installation was completely new to me, and I was thinking it would be fairly “simple”. I was right, but kinda not right. I’m not used to CLI commands, so I had to do some hunting around for a bit. I found some great articles, and unsupported tools that really accelerated setting this system up. Maybe this will help you get XenDesktop up and functional with the latest releases of Hyper-V, and if you choose to, use Server Core.
EDIT: Please note that Citrix does not yet officially support XenDesktop on Hyper-V and SCVMM 2008. We expect to within a release time frame surrounding MS’ official release of SCVMM.
