(2012-03-27) Remote Server Administration Tools (RSAT) For Windows Client “8” Consumer Preview

Posted by Jorge on 2012-03-27


To manage server roles and features remotely on Windows Client “8” Consumer Preview you need to download and install the Remote Server Administration Tools. You can download those from here. After installing the binaries for RSAT you do not need to enable the tools you need or want as, apparently, by default all Role Administration Tools and all Feature Administration Tools are enabled. If you want to only have the tools you need/want, you can disable the unwanted tools through Program and Features in the Control Panel followed by Turn Windows features on or off.

After clicking on the “new” Start Menu you see all the default tiles. On the far right, you will see a tile called “Administration Tools”

Another way to make the Role Administration Tools And Feature Administration Tools available/accessible is by starting the Server Manager once and pinning it to the taskbar

After clicking Server Manager as shown above, you will find Tools in the upper right corner. Clicking that and you will find the Remote Server Administration Tools on Windows Client “8” Consumer Preview.
