I have Windows 8 but when trying to add IIS in my MMC console only IIS 6 is available.  How can I resolve this to administrate a W2k8r2  iis7 server?

Also don't forget to enable remote management for IIS on your server:

You must install it as I suggested earlier. The link I posted will help you however it is simply just adding the feature.

Essentially. It is there but just needs to be enabled in the features so you can use it.
