Announcing the Remote Server Administration Tools (RSAT) for Windows Vista SP1!

Do you remember ADMINPAK.MSI? This has been a staple for many IT Admins for many years. RSAT is an update to ADMINPAK.MSI for the WS08 administration tools to run on Windows Vista with SP1 and includes the new Group Policy Management Console (GPMC) which adds functionality like search, filter, commenting, and most importantly, Group Policy Preferences. RSAT is the collection of Windows Server management tools provided to enable IT Professionals to manage their Windows Server infrastructure from their PCs running Windows Vista SP1. RSAT is available as a separate download rather than as part of another product. RSAT is available to all customers as part of a supplemental EULA to Windows Vista licenses.

 

You can install RSAT from the following locations:

      ·         Microsoft Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows Vista with SP1 (x64)

·         Microsoft Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows Vista with SP1 (x86)

 

RSAT Questions and Answers
