**Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 8 Consumer Preview can be installed ONLY on computers that are running Windows 8 Consumer Preview.** Remote Server Administration Tools cannot be installed on computers with an Advanced RISC Machine (ARM) architecture, or other system-on-chip devices.

Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 8 Consumer Preview includes support for remote management of computers that are running the Server Core installation option or the Minimal Server Graphical Interface configuration of Windows Server “8” Beta, and in limited cases, the Server Core installation options of Windows Server 2008 R2, or Windows Server 2008. However, Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 8 Consumer Preview cannot be installed on any versions of the Windows Server operating system.

Server Manager is included with Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 8 Consumer Preview; GUI-based tools that are part of this release of Remote Server Administration Tools can be opened by using commands on the Tools menu of the Server Manager console. To use Server Manager to access and manage remote servers that are running Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2008 R2, you must install several updates on the older operating systems.
