I've been playing with Microsoft's project Honolulu quite a bit. I do think that it could become a very nice, full-featured server management tool that is used to administrate Windows core and even windows nano machines.
As part of looking at Honolulu I've also been looking at Microsoft LAPS, the local Administration Password Solution and found that it can be rather fiddly to get working and so I wrote a blog on it that Starwind kindly posted here.
