Remote Server Administration Tools Pack

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

To ease remote server management, Microsoft has included a remote server administration tools pack on the Windows Server® 2008 product DVD-ROM.

About the Remote Server Administration Tools pack

You can install the Remote Server Administration Tools pack on computers running the Windows Server 2008 operating system, and use the Remote Server Administration Tools pack to manage specific technologies on computers running either Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2003.

The Remote Server Administration Tools pack enables remote management of some technologies that run on Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2003 from a computer running Windows Server 2008, by allowing you to open and run management tools on a remote computer.

The Remote Server Administration Tools pack includes support for remote management of computers running a Server Core installation of Windows Server 2008. However, Remote Server Administration Tools cannot be installed on a Server Core installation of the Windows Server 2008 operating system.

As with other management tools included with Windows Server 2008, Remote Server Administration Tools are secure by default. The default Remote Server Administration Tools configuration opens only those ports and enables only those services and firewall exceptions required for remote management to work.
