AdminPack / RSAT in Windows 10 for Windows Server 2016

I have blogged about AdminPack/RAST in the past,
1) Where is AdminPak in Windows 2008 and R2 ?
2) AdminPak / RSAT for Windows Server 2012 and R2

I just found out that one of the RAST package is no longer available, it is the RAST in Win8.1. If you are looking for the RSAT for win2012R2, you might need to get the RSAT package for Win10. And here is the link,

RSAT for Win10

IMPORTANT: Remove all older versions of Administration Tools Pack or Remote Server Administration Tools—including older prerelease versions, and releases of the tools for different languages or locales—from the computer before you install Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 10. Only one copy at a time of Remote Server Administration Tools can be installed on a computer. If you have upgraded to Windows 10 from an older release of Windows, you will need to install Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 10 on the computer; no earlier releases of Remote Server Administration Tools are still installed on a computer that you have upgraded to Windows 10.

Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 10 includes support for remote management of computers that are running the Server Core installation option or the Minimal Server Graphical Interface configuration of Windows Server Technical Preview. However, Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 10 cannot be installed on any releases or installation options of the Windows Server operating system.

Earlier releases of Remote Server Administration Tools (such as those for Windows 8.1) are not available–nor do they run–on Windows 10.

Server Manager is included with Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 10; GUI-based tools that are part of this release of Remote Server Administration Tools can be opened by using commands on the Tools menu of the Server Manager console. To use Server Manager to access and manage remote servers that are running Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2, or Windows Server 2016, you must install several updates on the older operating systems.

*P.S., RSAT (Remote Server Administration Tools) is the replacement toolkit to the AdminPak before Windows Server 2008
