I think we’ll see a lot of this in Microsoft’s new Windows servicing world, but with each new Windows 10 update so far, you have to be keen to watch for updates to other things. Earlier this week, the Administrative Templates for Group Policy were updated to be able to take advantage of new features in the November update for Windows 10, and now the Remote Server Administration Tools (RSAT) have been updated to support new features and OS changes and also to work with the latest Windows Server Technical Preview.
As we’ve seen in the previous release for Windows 10, certain features admins have become accustomed to seeing in RSAT are either being deprecated or replaced by PowerShell cmdlets. Here’s what’s NOT in this latest RSAT release:
- DHCP Tools. Dhcpmgmt.msc is not available in this release of RSAT, but equivalent Windows PowerShell cmdlets are available.
- IP Address Management (IPAM) Tools. IPAM tools are not available in this release of RSAT.
- Network Policy Server Tools. The NPS console is not supported on a Windows client-based operating system, and will be removed from future releases of RSAT.
- Routing and Remote Access Tools. Routing and Remote Access Tools that are GUI-based cannot be used for remote configuration in this release of RSAT, but the equivalent Windows PowerShell cmdlets are available.
