Tool Puts Win 8 in Windows Server 2012 Driver's Seat

Remote Server Administration Tools (RSAT) for the Windows 8 was just released as a sort of a beta (it only works with the Windows 8 Customer Preview). It's meant to let Win 8 clients manage Win 2012 servers remotely.

With RSAT, IT can use PowerShell or the built-in GUI.

If you want to control earlier servers, it appears you'll have to first load Windows Management Framework 3.0.  That way RSAT will talk to Windows 7 SP1, Windows Server 2008 R2 SP2 and  Windows Server 2008 SP2.
