Acquiring and enabling the GUI tools

The GUI tools are categorized under Remote Server Administration Tools (RSAT). They can also be used to manage roles and features on a local system. All of these tools require Windows 8/8.1 or Windows Server 2012/R2. Tools in newer operating systems can manage the earlier Hyper-V Server. Older tools can manage newer systems, but not the newer features. The tools are included automatically in the server operating systems, but you will need to download them from Microsoft for Windows 8 or 8.1.
