Once you have added remote servers to Server Manager, you can access them using a variety of remote administration tools.
Server Manager provides three basic methods for addressing remote servers, as follows:
Contextual tasks When you right-click a server in a Servers tile anywhere in Server Manager, you see a shortcut menu that provides access to tools and commands pointed at the selected server. Some of these are commands that Server Manager executes on the remote server, such as Restart Server and Windows PowerShell. Others launch tools on the local system and direct them at the remote server, such as MMC  snap-ins and the Install Roles And Features Wizard. Still others modify Server Manager itself by removing servers from the interface. Other contextual tasks sometimes appear in the Tasks menus for specific panes.
– Noncontextual tasks The menu bar at the top of the Server Manager console provides access to internal tasks, such as launching the Add Server Wizard and the Install Roles And Features Wizard, and the Server Manager Properties dialog box, in which you can specify the console’s refresh interval.
Noncontextual tools The console’s Tools menu provides access to external programs, such as MMC snap-ins and the Windows PowerShell interface, that are directed at the local system.
