Remote Server Management tools Windows XP

There are some things in life that will always be the same. Taxes will be due April 15 (in the US). The United States of America will always celebrate Independence Day on July 4th. Grant will always be buried in Grant’s Tomb. And, Microsoft will continue to make decisions and provide solutions that make us all shake our heads. If you run Windows Vista, you were shaking your head and in many cases, very upset about the situation of not having the proper tools to perform administration of your Windows Server 2003 or Windows Server 2008 network and Active Directory environment. Now, with the recent release of the Remote Server Administrative Tools (RSAT), the wait is over. This article describes some idiosyncrasies, installation steps, and tools that are available in the new RSAT for Windows Vista.

Why do I need RSAT?

If you are running Windows Vista as your “administrative desktop”, you will need to obtain RSAT to run the tools that administer Active Directory, network services, Group Policy, etc. The reason is that none of these tools come with Windows Vista out of the box.

Well, that is not 100% true. Microsoft made a decision to include Group Policy Management Console (GPMC) with Windows Vista. If this is the case, you might be wondering why you do not see the GPMC on your Windows Vista SP1 box now!? The reason is that the GPMC is removed when you install Windows Vista SP1. This was a decision that was made by the Group Policy team, in order to get all Vista computers to a common playing field so the NEW GPMC could be installed, which comes with RSAT.

Other tools that come along for the ride when you install RSAT include:

  • Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) Tools
  • Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services (AD LDS) Tools
  • Active Directory Certification Authority Tools
  • DHCP Server Tools
  • DNS Server Tools
  • Terminal Services tools
  • Universal Description, Discovery, and Integration (UDDI) Services Tools
  • Group Policy Management Tools
  • Network Load Balancing Tools
