RSAT for Windows 7 downloads are available

While this has been true for a while, I figured that it is worth mentioning that if you are running Windows 7, you can download the Remote Server Administration Tools (RSAT) for Windows 7. If you’ve used the Administration Tools for Windows XP (Adminpak.msi), this is the equivalent for Windows 7. Windows Vista has its own version. The important thing to note after downloading and installing the RSAT package is that you then have to access the Turn Windows features on or off dialog box inside the Control Panel – Programs and Features to actually enable the specific tools you want. To manage Active Directory, for example, you will have to install the AD DS Snap-Ins and Command-Line Tools
