Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 7 with SP1 enables IT administrators to manage roles and features that are installed on computers that are running Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2008, or Windows Server 2003, from a remote computer that is running Windows 7.


Remote Desktop manager is one of the admin pack tool to manage multiple remote desktop connections in one screen and it allows saving user name password for each connection profile. So next time you do not need to type user name and password to connect specific computer or server. Install the Administration Tools pack on a computer that is running the Professional, Enterprise, or Ultimate editions of Windows 7.


Step 1 - Integrate Windows System in “mydomain.com”. Logon with administrator local account and go to network properties and check the network details and connectivity.

Depends on the requirement of network, you can select each option. As I mentioned earlier, you can manage Windows 2003,2008 and 2008 R2 Servers from Windows 7 client computer by this administration tools pack.  You must be in administrator group or administration tasks privilege should have been given to perform some of server tasks.
