Exchange 2010 Management Shell for Windows 7 32bit

How do you get the Management Shell download for Windows 7 32 bit to manage Exchange server 2010 from the shell?

All I can find on Microsoft's site is Exchange2010-SP1-x64.exe and I'm not sure if that'll work since my system is a Windows 7 x86 OS.

Do you have to have the Exchange DVD to install the Management shell client utilities, and what if the DVD is only 64 bit?
Or will the Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 Management Tools (32-Bit) download work against Exchange 2010?

    Accepted Solution

    There is no 32bit version of the Exchange 2010 management tools, you will need to use them installed on a 64bit Operating System.

    Assisted Solution

    Your only option for 32bit is powershell 2 and winRm which will allow you to connect remotely to your E2k10 server via powershell and run powershell commands

    You have another simpler option : Use RDP to manage your server directly, simpler and lighter for your workstation
    I have a linux box and I manage all my windows servers like that.
    Hope this helps
