Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 7 Beta

The RSAT tools for managing Windows Server 2008 R2 Beta from a Windows 7 Beta machine are now available on the Microsoft Download Center.

Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 7 enables IT administrators to manage roles and features that are installed on remote computers that are running Windows Server 2008 R2 (and, for some roles and features, Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2003) from a remote computer that is running Windows 7. It includes support for remote management of computers that are running either the Server Core or full installation options of Windows Server 2008 R2, and for some roles and features, Windows Server 2008. Some roles and features on Windows Server 2003 can be managed remotely by using Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 7, although the Server Core installation option is not available with the Windows Server 2003 operating system.

    Hello, I have just now upgraded tot Windows 7 RTM but I can no longer find the Remote Server administrator tools for Windows 7 at the download center. Has this been moved, can I download it somewhere else? It is an essential part of my daily tools.
