RAS Remote Management Tools

0 users found this article helpful

In Parallels RAS 17, we added a feature that allows admins to manage servers and remote PCs using Windows Remote Management Tools from within Remote Application Server Console. This means that when you need to perform standard Windows computer management tasks, you can do it without leaving the Parallels RAS Console. The tasks include Remote Desktop Connection, Computer Management, Service Management, Even Viewer, PowerShell, Reboot, and others.

To access the Tools menu, select a server in the Parallels RAS Console and then click Tasks (or right-click) > Tools.

The Tools menu is available in the following pages of the Parallels RAS Console:

The table below describes the available tools and their respective execution strings.


Note: All PowerShell related tools require PSRemoting enabled. See KB 124710 for computer management tools requirement.
