There are several methods by which system administrators can manage the IT environment's server resources. Though it is possible to manage each server locally, managing these resources remotely can greatly improve productivity. Remote administration reduces the administrative overhead required to manage servers in any size IT organization because it provides the flexibility for administrators to be centrally located while managing distributed server resources.

Windows Server 2003 provides the tools necessary for administrators to perform a vast array of management functions on remotely located servers. Server application and operating system upgrades can be performed remotely, as well as domain controller promotion/demotion and disk defragmentation.
