In just a couple of weeks, we will have another webcast on Server Manager. One of the key points that will be presented during the webcast is Remote Server Administration Tools (RSAT). RSAT is the new version of the Win2k3 Admin Pack and will be available as a web download so you can install the Win2k8 administration tools on a Vista SP1 computer. More details about the webcast can be found below. 

TechNet Webcast:  Managing Windows Server 2008 with Server Manager (Level 200)
Tuesday, December 11, 2007 11:30 AM – 1:00 PM Pacific Time (US & Canada)
Abstract:  Windows Server 2008 has significant improvements in server manageability with a one-stop administrative solution called Server Manager. This streamlined management tool enables IT administrators to complete setup of Windows Server using the Initial Configuration Tasks page, and configure and manage server roles and features with prescriptive wizards, a unified management console, and a command-line interface. In this session, we present and demonstrate the configuration and management capabilities of Server Manager and introduce some new features of Server Manager in Windows Server 2008 Release Candidate 1 (RC1), including integration of the virtualization role and remote server administration tools.
