Is there a way to get this to work on a users computer without loading the admin pak?  I have a user who I have created a custom MMC with task views so they can unlock and reset passwords for their users.  I placed the DSA.MSC in the \windows\system32 folder, but when they try to launch the MMC they are getting a snap-in error.
Thanks
Jeff

I think you are stuck using the admin pak.......but that is easy enough to do......and you can still restrict your user to the custom mmc that you have built..they won't have access to anything you don't allow.

I have a word for that, aaarrrrgggg ....  I know they don't have access, however I don't even want them to have all those snap-in's  It's just something for them to play with, even after I delete all the short cut's, they still will play with the MMC.
Time for a letter to MS.
Thanks

Once you get them setup with a functioning mmc, you should be able to delete all snapins except for your custom job.
You know the old saying......it ain't evil, it's just MS............  :-)

I could always be wrong,  :-)      ........... but I think I answered the question, giving the same solution as Netman66's knowledge base article...give the user a custom mmc using only the specific snapin (tool) needed for the task to be assigned to that user.................

Hi JConchie,

Sorry actually complete mis-read you first comment - I blame this head cold :-(

If you or Netman66 don't have any objections I prepose a split between the two of you for the points.

Thanks for the pick up :-)
