Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 7 (RTM)

Earlier I had blogged about the toolkit being available for Windows 7 RC but now Microsoft has officially released the RTM version of the tools. Big thanks to my co-worker Nick Piccone ( Twitter ) for bringing this to my attention. The new tools are available at the Microsoft site at the link below:

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).
