MMC for RRAS in Win7 ?


  • Is there an MMC plugin/option for administering Routing and Remote Access (RRAS) on a Windows Server from a Windows 7 client machine ?  There is absolutely no mention of this in the RSAT for Windows 7 that I installed.  I need to be able to administer the RRAS for our company without remoting the server each time.

    Please help.  Thanks.

  • Hi,


    This is by design.


    The Routing and Remote Access snap-in is included in the Windows Server 2008 Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows Vista Service Pack 1. But the Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 7 doesn’t contain it.


    You may check the descriptions of these Remote Server Administration Tools in the above KB links.


    We will report this to our related department.


    Also, customers with a Premier contract with Microsoft can submit a DCR (Design Change Request) to request product teams to review the design based on your business case (filing a DCR does not guarantee changes to design).


    Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
