RSAT for Windows Vista - Seriously now...

Posted: 03-13-2008, 09:24 AM
Hi

I originally ran Vista Business when it was first released to SA customrs
more than a year ago. I battled it out with application compatibility issues
and NO remote admin tools for servers. I gave up after a month. I took the
plunge again about 5 months ago when I heard about RSAT for Windows Vista.

The Betra was only open to Technet plus customers, but as we were concluding
our previous agreement and signing up for the new one, the program benefits
were a little muddled and I got there too late. By the time i got on to MSDN
Connect, the Beta had been closed and SP1 has been released. Sysadmins were
then promised the tool "shortly after the Windows 2008 Server launch". This
has come and gone with no announcements to customers.

I have a team of sysadmins ready to turf Vista and return to XP again
(myself included). Is there a site or blog that shows the progress or even
an official release date for this tool? Seriously now, it has been more than
a year since the Vista release.

Thanks,
Sean

Microsoft advises that the product will be released April 1st.

Google to the rescue. :-)

"Microsoft plans to release a Vista version of RSAT shortly after Service
Pack 1 becomes available."
(Of course, this comment was dated Jun 26, 2007.)

Hi Richard, thanks for the response. Google netted me the same response as
Mark below you. Your answer has me feeling relieved, but one cannot help
wondering... April Fools day...
