Installing the Active Directory snap-in in Windows 7

The Microsoft Remote Server Administration Tools (RSAT) toolkit allows administrators to remotely manage the roles and functions of Windows Server 2008 R2 from a computer running Windows 7.
It includes support for remote control of computers running Server Core or a full-featured Windows Server 2008 R2 server.

Installing RSAT is carried out in 2 stages:

Actually installing the RSAT distribution (where I already described it in the article about including Windows 7 in the AD domain, just in case I remind you -4e344e43997d & displaylang = en)
Activation of functions and consoles (snap-ins) RSAT.

Step 1. Install RSAT

wusa Windows6.1-KB958830-x86.msu / quiet (x86)
wusa Windows6.1-KB958830-x64.msu / quiet (x64)

After installing the RSAT package, which contains most of the utilities and equipment needed by the administrator, they will be available in the Control Panel (Programs & Features – Windows Features).

Step 2. Turn on snap-ins and RSAT features

The various functions of the RSAT package can be activated using the command line utility (CLI), called DISM (Deployment Image Services and Management), its use is completely analogous to the procedure for enabling / disabling functions and roles in Windows Server 2008 R2 Server Core.

DISM allows you to list, install, remove, configure, or update features and packages in a Windows image. The list of available commands depends on the operating mode of the system: offline or online.

To get a list of all available functions, type in the command line:

dism / Online / Get-Features

install rsat

For example:

dism / Online / Enable-Feature: RemoteServerAdministrationTools-Roles-DHCP

The RSAT toolkit in Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7 will also allow you to remotely manage servers (running Windows Server 2008 R2) using the Server Manager snap-in via remote PowerShell.
