If you manage Windows servers in a small lab or a large data center, then you need the Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 8 (download). This tool enables system administrators to manage roles and features that are installed on remote computers that are running Windows Server 2012, 2008 R2, and 2008 (all versions).
NOTE: In this release of Remote Server Administration Tools all the tools are enabled by default. There is no need to enable them by using the Turn Windows features on or off dialog in Windows 8.To remove tools that you don't want to use, follow the instructions below:
- On the desktop, hover in the upper right corner of the screen, and then click Settings, then click the Control Panel.
- Click Programs, and then in Programs and Features, click the Turn Windows features on or off link.
- In the Windows Features dialog box, expand Remote Server Administration Tools, and then expand either Role Administration Tools or Feature Administration Tools.
- Clear the check boxes for any tools that you want to remove. Press the OK button, and then close the Control Panel window.
