Administrators everywhere have been waiting for these tools to land, and now they have – as part of a much larger release today, including Technical Preview 3 for Windows Server 2016 and System Center 2016.

The Remote Server Administration Tools (or, RSAT), include tools to remotely manage Windows Servers. This set, released today, allow even Windows 10 users to manage their servers.

Here's what's available:

  • Server Manager

  • Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-ins

  • Windows PowerShell cmdlets and providers

  • Command-line tools for managing roles and features that run on Windows Server Technical Preview

Additionally, you should know that RSAT for Windows 10 CANNOT manage:

  • IP Address Management (IPAM). IPAM tools are not available in this release of RSAT.
