Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 8 Consumer Preview 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 "8" Beta. 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.

I have installed the update on my Windows 8 CP Installation and it did it successfully. Unfortunately I can not find the Server Manager or any of the consoles. According to the download page, they all should be activated by default. Did I miss something?
