Remote Server Administration Tools For Windows 10 1909

Remote server is a server that is dedicated to handle users that are not on the LAN but need remote access. In layman’s terms, a remote server is a computer that is not attached to your peripherals but you have some degree of control over it (mostly through internet ), whether it is in the same room, another part of a building or even another country.

It provides a suite of services to remotely connected users over a network or the Internet. You can access the files and other services on a remote server once you are authenticated. This is done with the help of associated firewall server

Local and remote servers

Local and remote TM1® servers provide access to cubes and data that is stored either on your computer or on other computers in your network.

A local server gives you exclusive access to data and objects in a set of Windows folders called data directories. During the TM1 client session, only you can create, browse, and modify data or objects that a local server stores. You can also control where the data directories are located.Note: The Sdata sample server, which is installed by default with the TM1 server, contains the same objects and data that is found in Pdata.

Remote servers provide access to shared data and objects in your organization. A user’s level of access depends on the security group that the administrator assigns to the user name (client ID) that the user employs to access the remote server. For example, a user might be able to update March sales data that is stored on a department’s remote server, but that user can browse only the campaign data that is stored on the Marketing department’s remote server.Note: You must know the name of the server that you want to work with. If you work with a local server, the server name is Local. If you work with a remote server, your server administrator must set up a user name and password for you before you can access that server.

If you work with a remote server, you must know the location of the Admin Host on which a TM1 Admin Server is running, and the Admin Host must be accessible from your system.

The Admin Server is a process that tracks the TM1 servers that are running on your network. A client references the Admin Server to determine which servers are available at any time

(Microsoft Remote Server Administration Tools)

RSAT (Remote Server Administration Tools) is a Windows Server component for  remote management of other computers also running that operating system. RSAT was introduced in Windows server 2008 R2

RSAT allows administrators to run snap-ins and tools on a remote computer to manage features, roles and role services. The software includes tools for cluster-aware updating, Group Policy management and Hyper-V management, as well as the Best Practices Analyzer.

RSAT runs on Windows 7, Windows 8 Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows server 2012.

What is included in Remote Server Administration Tools?

How do I install remote admin tools in Windows 10?

Steps to Install RSAT on Windows 10

  1. Navigate to Settings.
  2. Click on Apps and then select Apps & Features.
  3. Select Optional features (or Manage optional features).
  4. Next, click on Add a feature.
  5. Scroll down and select RSAT.

How to Use Remote Server Admin Tools to Manage Active Directory Users and Computers

There are many reasons to step away from your desk. Coffee, for example, is an excellent reason. Or maybe you just need to stretch your legs (honestly, you probably deserve to take a break). But managing the functionality provided by your servers need not be a reason to leave your desk. With the right mix of tools you can control and manage many aspects of your servers and your domain(s) from the convenience of your primary machine.

When it comes to managing the network at a distance Windows Terminal Services\Remote Desktop and VMWare’s ESX VSphere (for those of you with a little virtual in your infrastructure) are two well-documented options. In this article I’d like to introduce you to a third, possibly less well known option – the Remote Server Admin Tool (RSAT). This optional update from Microsoft (KB958830, although it is not available through Windows/Microsoft Update) can allow easy access to server functions right from your desktop.

RSAT extends the functionality provided by the Microsoft Management Console (MMC). The MMC offers a centralized interface into which specific functionalities can be snapped.


Manage Server Roles and Features

  1. You can access the MMC by pressing the Start button and typing MMC into the search box. Note: Depending on the current inherent or delegated administrative rights assigned to your user account, you may need to use the “Run as Administrator” function when opening the MMC.
  2. Here, you can see the MMC in its default state.
  3. The default console is rather sparse, so your next step is to start adding snap-ins. From within the MMC, click on “File”, and then “Add/Remove Snap Ins”.
  4. By selecting items from the left pane (“Available snap-ins”), and clicking “Add” to move them to the right pane (“Selected snap-ins”), you will add those items into the console, as shown here.

You can now manage those Server Roles and Features as if you were interacting with them directly on the server! This is especially useful for unlocking domain accounts, managing group assignments, or (re)configuring group policy objects. However there are quite a few more specialized features you can manage with RSAT, some of which are shown in the “Add/Remove snap-ins” screenshot above.


Setting Up RSAT

  1. Open the Start menu, and search for Settings.
  2. Once within Settings, go to Apps.
  3. Click Manage Optional Features.
  4. Click Add a feature.
  5. Scroll down to the RSAT features you would like installed.
  6. Click to install the selected RSAT feature.
  7. Click back to the Manage Optional Features menu and you will see it installing.
  8. It will also be in this list to uninstall afterwards.

Microsoft’s RSAT documentation page (has an updated system requirements): https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/remote/remote-server-administration-tools


One more note on the MMC: Nobody likes to repeat themselves, so once you have selected your snap-ins of choice, you should save your console to a location of your choosing for quick access.

In summary, after a brief initial setup you can use the Remote Server Admin Tool to enhance the Windows Microsoft Management Console and manage aspects of your Domain, Active Directory, and Network directly from your desktop. You may be surprised at just how quick, easy, and powerful the combination of RSAT and MMC can be. Now, how about that cup of coffee?
