(2013-10-20) Remote Server Administration Tools (RSAT) For Windows 8.1 x86/x64

Posted by Jorge on 2013-10-20


Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 8.1 includes Server Manager, Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-ins, consoles, Windows PowerShell cmdlets and providers, and command-line tools for managing roles and features that run on Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2012 R2. In limited cases, the tools can be used to manage roles and features that are running on Windows Server 2008 R2 or Windows Server 2008. Some of the tools work for managing roles and features on Windows Server 2003.

The following tools can be used to manage roles and features that are running on Windows Server 2012 R2, but are not supported for managing roles and features on Windows Server 2012:

  • IP Address Management console
  • Hyper-V tools: Although you are not blocked from using Hyper-V cmdlets for Windows PowerShell in this release of Remote Server Administration Tools to manage Hyper-V running on Windows Server 2012, this scenario is not officially supported. Managing Hyper-V on Windows Server 2012 by using GUI-based tools in this download is supported.

For more details and to download the tools, follow this link.

To manage server roles and features remotely on Windows Client 8.1 you need to download and install the Remote Server Administration Tools. After installing the binaries for RSAT you need to enable the tools you want to use through "Program and Features" in the Control Panel.

PS: wouldn’t it be very interesting if an RSAT version was made available for Windows RT (Surface)?

(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.
