Microsoft just released a new Windows 10 Insider build (Build 17682), with a lot of improvements. However, a great new feature for IT Pros is that RSAT (Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 10) is now a feature on demand. You can now go to Windows Settings, Optional Features and select add features, where you then will see the different Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 10 or Windows 10 RSAT.
This means IT Pros do not need to manually download the RSAT tools to upgrade. This will safe most of us a lot of time.
What is RSAT
Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 10 lets IT administrators manage Windows Server from a remote computer running the full release version of Windows 10.
How to Install Windows 10 RSAT
As mentioned you can use the Windows 10 Settings and add the feature using the UI, but you are also available using PowerShell.
# List available RSAT Tools Get-WindowsCapability -Online | ? Name -like 'RSAT* # Install RSAT Tool Add-WindowsCapability -Online -Name Rsat.ActiveDirectory.DS-LDS.Tools~~~~0.0.1.0
This feature is currently only available in the Windows 10 Insider builds and is likely to be rolled out to everyone with Windows 10 1809 later this year.Tags: Feature on Demand, Microsoft, Optional Feature, PowerShell, Remote Server Administration Tools, RSAT, Tools, Windows, Windows 10, Windows 10 RSAT Last modified: August 22, 2018
