network-related or instance-specific error...

description

This is the typical message for not connecting.
Windows Server 2008 R2 in a Hyper-V machine
SQL Server 2008 R2 SP1
All DAC goodness added
I can use SSMS on the server and it connects
DacCli.exe error as above when trying to load bacpac to SQL Server 2008 R2 SP1
So is this feature then only good for SQL Server 2012 ???

You should be able to load a bacpac to 2008R2 using daccli. The error you mention occurs when you can't connect over the network. It is possible your organization's IT protocols may be blocking communication to your VM.
