Remote Server Administration Tools Windows 10 v1809 it’s now available through “Features on Demand” only

So it seams Windows Remote Server Administration Tools (RSAT) for Windows 10 v1809 are only available through “Features on Demand” directly.

There will be probably a way to download them and install them offline but for the time being here’s the official way to do it:

  1. Go to Settings > Apps > Manage Optional Features
  2. Click “Add a feature”
  3. Scroll-down the list and install the features you need (ex.: RSAT: Group Policy Management Tools)

If you’d like to do it the “geek way” or need a more unattended procedure here’s how:

  1. Open an elevated command-prompt

  2. Execute the following command:
    DISM.exe /Online /add-capability /CapabilityName:Rsat.ActiveDirectory.DS-LDS.Tools~~~~ /CapabilityName:Rsat.BitLocker.Recovery.Tools~~~~

  3. The above example will install 2 features of RSAT
