http://serverfault.com – So, I have installed the Remote Server Administration Tools on my Win7 computer, and it works well, but it is a bit slow sometimes, over our site-to-site VPN. I have a Server 2008 R2 that I login to for tasks I need to be speedy, but I a unable to install the Remote Server Administration Tools on Server 2008 R2. My question is this: Can I enable these tools without promoting this server to a domain controller? I realize the tools are already part of the Server OS, I just want to use them to administer my domain without connecting directly to my domain controller. (HowTos)
