Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 7 Released

Today Microsoft released the 1.0 version of the Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 7.  The Tools allow IT administrators to manage roles and features installed on computers that are running Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2008, or Windows Server 2003 from a remote computer running Windows 7.

 

Details from Microsoft:

 

Overview:

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.
This feature is comparable in functionality to the Windows Server 2003 Administrative Tools Pack and Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows Vista with Service Pack 1 (SP1).

 

The beta for the Admin tools was released back in January and the Release Candidate Tools May 5th, so for all you groovyReader System Admins, grab the final release of the tools now!
