I don't want to consume a license just for the server manager, so I was wondering if I could use the existing 2008 server manager or if not, is the a management console install for workstation (Win 7), if the latter, can anyone advise what it is called on the MSDN search?
Download should complete in a couple of hours so I should be able to answer the first question myself quite soon.
I can confirm that the previous version of server manager is not compatible. I have another 2012 standard (GUI) instance and I was able to connect using that, and discovered the significantly more powerful remote management features of 2012.
