Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 10 have been released. Remote Server Administration Tools are meant for system and IT administrators. They allow admins to set and manage roles as well as the features that are installed on a Windows Server computer, from a Windows 10 Pro or Windows 10 Enterprise remote computer. These tools let IT administrators manage Windows Server from a remote computer running the full release version of Windows 10.
Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 10
The Tools set includes:
- Server Manager
- Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-ins,
- Windows PowerShell cmdlets and providers
Command line tools for the features running on Windows Server are also included in the tools set released lately.
While administrators can now manage roles and features running on Windows Server, there are a few exceptions which include-
- DHCP Tools.
- IP Address Management (IPAM) Tools.
- Network Policy Server Tools.
- Routing and Remote Access Tools.
These tools are not available for remote configuration in this release of administrative tools, but thee equivalent Windows PowerShell cmdlets are available. Administrators can install RSAT for Windows 10 only on the machines running the full released of Windows 10 Professional or Windows 10 Enterprise and not on the Windows RT, ARM PCs, or other system-on-chip devices.
RAST for Windows 10 is available only in US English for now and if you are running Windows 10 in some other language, make sure that you install US English language pack before you install the lately released RSAT (Remote Server Administration Tools).
Important: Only one copy of RSAT can be installed on a machine at a time, thus it is important to remove all older versions of Administration Tools Pack or Remote Server Administration Tools from the computer before you install Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 10.
Older releases of RSAT are not upgraded to Windows 10 and thus if you have upgraded your older version of Windows to Win 10, you have to fresh install RSAT for Windows 10 on your PC.
