It’s a bit strange that my “back-to-blogging” post is about a new version of Remote Manager considering that my last post, way back in March 2008 was a Remote Manager post as well (I have a good reason for not blogging since then which you’ll see at the end of this post :-)
The new version has some internal changes but the major new feature is the ability to remotely manage IIS 7 on Windows Server 2008 R2 machines as well as Windows Server 2008 machines. Another additional is the ability to use the tool from Windows 7.
Other then these changes everything is the same as before.
How do I get it?
Via Web PI:
The IIS.NET download center:
Microsoft.com download center:
What happened to Brian Delahunty’s Ramblings?
So, the reason that I haven’t blogged since my last post on the original Remote Manager is pretty straight forward – I changed position in Microsoft back in March 08 from a Program Manager on the IIS team to a Software Design Engineer on the IIS team and have been busy working on projects such as Web Deployment Tool, Database Manager, FTP 7.5, Smooth Streaming, Administration Pack, Advanced Logging, Dynamic IP Restrictions, and more, and of course on IIS 7.5 on Windows 7/Windows Server 2008 R2. More entries to come soon :-)
