Remote Server Administration Tools (RSAT) for Windows 7 enables Windows Server administrators to manage roles and features that are installed on servers running Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2008, or Windows Server 2003, from a remote computer that is running Windows 7.
We are pleased to have these available for download immediately – in synch with the releases of Windows Server and Windows Client RTM. Feedback from early adopters has been positive, easing early deployments.
Once downloaded and installed the MSU package, enable the RSAT tools under Control Panel, Programs, Programs and Features, Turn Windows features on or off. Expand Remote Server Administration Tools and select the remote management tools that you want to install.
