Hi there. After a refreshing Easter Break being blown around the Gower Peninsula in Wales. Which is absolutely beautiful part of the United Kingdom Wales. I come back to work and the biggest news for me of the day is that RSAT (Remote Server Administration Tools) is now available for download from Microsoft's Web site. This is available in both the 64 bit and 32 bit versions from these locations.

What does this mean ?

This is the Vista \ 2008 replacement for the ADMINPAK.MSI. This will enable you to manage your Windows 2008 environment from a Vista SP1 box and also have the addition to the GPMC snap-in to create setup and configure Group Policy Preferences.

The supported operating systems for this is;

Windows Vista Business; Windows Vista Enterprise; Windows Vista Ultimate  (all sp1)

Enjoy !
