Windows 10 RSAT Feature on Demand

Windows 10 RSAT Feature on Demand

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

Install Windows 10 RSAT using PowerShell

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~~~~

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.
