Managing Server 2012 Remotely

You can certainly run Server Manager locally from a domain controller, but best practices dictate running graphical tools from a remote client machine. Running ADAC, Server Manager, and other tools remotely reduces the overhead on a server.

RSAT (Remote Server Administration Tools) includes Server Manager, MMC snap-ins, consoles, Windows PowerShell cmdlets, and command-line tools for managing roles and features that run on Server 2012.
