The interface has changed and maybe I'm being dense, but I haven't seen where to do this yet.
I just installed my first Windows 2008 server. On Windows 2003 and below, I can right click on My Computer, go to manage, and from there right click on the (local) computer and change to any remote NT-based computer and read the logs, manage services, etc...
I can't for the life of me find it under 2008. Looks like the management console was replaced with some kind of server management console, and I don't see where it can connect and read logs/stats on remote systems.
This is Windows 2008 x64 standard.
