Enabling Hyper-V Server 2016 for Remote Management

The Hyper-V Server 2016 is great solution if you want to host Hyper-V VMs without paying for a Server 2016 standard (or higher) license.
The Server does not offer a full graphical user interface and no Hyper-V Manager. You can do almost every Hyper-V administration task from PowerShell but you need some time to dive into the set of cmdlets and I only work with Hyper-V Server from time to time so I would prefer a graphical tool.
The solution is to use a mangement pc where the Hyper-V Manager is installed and connect to the Hyper-V Server over the network. Microsoft has published an excellent articel about the configuration steps.
