The Windows Server 2003 Administration Tools Pack installs incorrectly on Windows Vista-based and Windows 7-based computers. In addition, the tools that are included in the Windows Server 2003 Administration Tools Pack are not tested to run on computers that are running Windows Vista or Windows 7. Therefore, the product is not supported for these installations.
Note With the collection of command-line admin tools and graphical user interface (GUI) admin tools that are in RSAT, Windows Vista and Windows 7 clients can remotely manage server roles in Windows Server 2008, in Windows Server 2008 R2, and in some Windows Server 2003 target computers cases. RSAT is a replacement for AdminPack and Support Tools in the Windows 2000 operating system and in the Windows Server 2003 operating system.
|Operating system||Admin Tools installation steps|
|Windows Vista||Install the Microsoft Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows Vista from http://www.microsoft.com.|
|Windows Server 2008||Click to select the Remote Server Administration Tools check box in the Features node of Server Manager.|
|Windows 7||Install the Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 7.|
|The Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 7 Release Candidate can be downloaded from http://www.microsoft.com.|
|Note The beta version (or any previous non-RTM versions) of RSAT must be deleted before you install the RTM version of RSAT.|
|Windows Server 2008 R2||Click to select the Remote Server Administration Tools check box in the Features node of Server Manager.|
Do not try to copy, install, or run an earlier version of the Administration Tools Pack on a computer that is running on an unsupported operating system. For example, do not try to copy or install the Windows Server 2003 Administration Tools Pack on a Windows 7-based computer. Similarly, do not try to copy or install the Windows 7 Administration Tools Pack on a Windows XP-based computer or on a Windows Vista-based computer.
