Everything I read online says to install it via the installation DVD. What if I don't have that? This was installed on a server in a different office and I don't have it here, but I need to install the management console on my local machine.

Is there somewhere online I can download this from? I can't seem to find it.

Take care with the server versión, if not the same, the console will not work and give you a warning message about versions difference between client and server!!! Look for installed ServicePack and UpdateRollUp in your server first!! Here are all versions from Microsoft: Link – Cristian Barreto Oct 23 '15 at 20:15
