I've install SCCM 2012 on a server and have successfully used the Remote Control option to take control of a system I've setup to be managed by SCCM. Now, I don't want to have to log in to a server every time I want to access this client...is there a way to run the Remote Control Viewer client on my desktop OS so I can take remote control of systems rather than having to remote in from the server? This seems like very basic functionality...but I haven't been able to figure it out thus far.

    If you run the SCCM installer on your desktop, you should have the option to install only the console. – William Jackson Nov 22 '11 at 22:02

When you run the SCCM installer on your workstation, choose the option to Install Configuration Manager console. Now you can run the console from your own workstation instead of using remote desktop to the server.

This screenshot is from Beta 1, but it looks the same.
