Hi Experts,
  In Windows 2003 Active Directory Environment you were able open Computer Manager, right click on Computer Manager and Connect to another Computer.

This was very useful in checking Events of PC and local users:

Now in Windows 2008 Active Directory Environment you now have Server Manager.  Where in this do you connect to another PC to view events/users?  Or have they changed this screen to use another method?

Server Manager is simply a collection of all the management tools which are installed by the appropriate roles on the server.

If you wish, you are still able to access each of these tools individual by going to 'Administrative Tools' in the Control Panel. You can then right-click and choose to Connect to another computer as per the method in previous versions of Windows.
