Deploying Remote Server Management Programs for Windows 8 Using ConfigMgr
Week I want to give a post remote server Management Applications (RSAT) for Windows 8 with ConfigMgr 2012. In my own opinion it should be deployed utilizing the application model Though the installer is only available as a Windows Update Standalone Installer. This gives the possibility to show some fundamentals about the Detection Rules and about the software in ConfigMgr 2012 along with the Prerequisites to me.
