Vista Remote Admin Tools Finally Arrive!

One of my biggest peaves about Vista has been the lack of support for managing existing Server 03 servers. Well, Microsoft finally released the Remote Server Administration Tools (RSAT) for Vista SP1 yesterday. After almost a year of suffering through unstable beta’s and oddities in release candidates, the RSAT finally appears ready. Though primarily designed to remotely manage Server 08, several core tools for Server 03 management are resolved, such as no longer needing to register the management dll’s, DHCP scopes resolution, and the now infamous Vista SP1 removal of the GPMC.
You can find the requisite versions here:
