    Winmsd is not included with Server 2008.

    I am not sure how specific you want this question to be answered. In Windows 2008, there is a new feature called Server Manager, which is a consolidation of many tools in 2003.

    Click on the Start button, Right Click on My Computer and then choose Manage. From there you can configure all the services for your server as well as view the system information/config. Or Start -> Administrative Tools.

    I hope this will help.
