Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 10

Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 10

There here!  I’m sure most of my fellow engineers and administrators have been patiently (or not) waiting for the arrival of Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 10 and they are officially here.  They were released as a part of Technical Preview 3 for Windows Server 2016 and System Center 2016.  This version of RSAT should allow us to accomplish all the tasks we are used to performing plus many of the new features on Windows Server 2016.  There are a few things that are not included with this release according to Microsoft’s website and I have listed those below.

  • DHCP Tools. Dhcpmgmt.msc is not available in this release of RSAT, but equivalent Windows PowerShell cmdlets are available.
  • IP Address Management (IPAM) Tools. IPAM tools are not available in this release of RSAT.
  • Network Policy Server Tools. The NPS console is not supported on a Windows client-based operating system, and will be removed from future releases of RSAT.
  • Routing and Remote Access Tools. Routing and Remote Access Tools that are GUI-based cannot be used for remote configuration in this release of RSAT, but the equivalent Windows PowerShell cmdlets are available.

That’s it!  Now go download the tools and get to work!
