Remote Server Administration Tools (RSAT)There's good news for all you waiting on the Remote Server Administration Tools (RSAT). Microsoft has released the Remote Server Administration Tools (RSAT) for Windows Vista. Remember, to be able to install RSAT on Windows Vista, Service Pack 1 for Windows Vista is required and must therefore already be installed! Download locations can be found below: Microsoft Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows Vista SP1 (x86) Microsoft Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows Vista SP1 (x64) Hyper-V Management Microsoft also placed an update for Microsoft Windows Vista with ServicePack 1 on its download servers that enables you to enable remote management of a Windows Server 2008 computer running the Hyper-V RC0 role. All users of the Hyper-V role are encouraged to apply this upgrade. After you install this item, you may have to restart your computer.

You can copy the client files from the Hyper-V directory. Your host needs to be a domain member at the moment (no means of authenticating except pass-through).

Then it's RDP to your physical host and then the Hyper-V mgmt interface. Or RDP to your virtual hosts.

Thanks toall of you, yes, started using RDP but my remote desktop version is not running NLA so I can not really use the option "Allow connections .........running RD with Network Level Authentification". is there an add on or a plug for RDP on win XP pro? Thanks

I'm sorry to have to inform you in Windows XP you cannot use Network Level Authentication (NLA) with Remote Desktop Connection (Terminal Services Client). (Source) This is a specific issue to Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 and is not resolved with installing Remote Desktop Connection (Terminal Services Client 6.0). Windows XP ServicePack 3 is scheduled to include version 6.1 of the Remote Desktop Connection (Terminal Services Client) which might enable Network Level Authentication (NLA) on this platform. Your options: Download a release candidate version of Windows XP ServicePack 3 and install it. After installation check to see whether Remote Desktop Connection (Terminal Services Client) 6.1 allows Network Level Authentication (NLA) to your platform (check the About screen) Compile your own version of the Remote Desktop Connection (Terminal Services Client) 6.1 for Windows XP ServicePack 2, using the steps described here. Wait for Windows XP ServicePack 3 or Remote Desktop Connection (Terminal Services Client) 6.1 from Microsoft. Use the Remote Desktop Protocol without Network Level Authentication (NLA) by selecting the 'Allow connection from computers running any version of Remote Desktop (less secure)' option in the Remote Desktop portion of the System Properties of your Windows Server 2008 box. Note:Only the last 2 optionsare Microsoft supported options in production environments.

Thanks a lot, but why then on the download page of client 6 it is indicated that it supports NLA. Anyway, I will waith for SP3. Do you have any idea when SP3 will be released?
