Hello,

I have a Win 2000 domain with Active Directory, and running Exchange 2000.  

Is it possible to install the management programs (Active Directory Users & Computers, and Exchange Management Console) onto a Windows XP Professional workstation?  If so, can you please tell me how I would go about this.

Thanks!

Download the Adminpak from Microsoft.  Provided you have the permissions you can manage AD from your workstation.  To manage Exchange, go though the install procedure for Exchange on your worksatation only choose the management tools option.

That's a handy bunch of utilities... thanks.  

This gets me about half way to where I need to be.  

If memory serves, when I look at a user property, I should be able to see a row of tabs for Exchange stuff.  In particular, how to add e-mail addresses to a user.  

Is there a utility that will allow me to do this from XP?

Thanks!

You will have the tabs you mention after installing the management console for Exchange on your workstation. Make sure your user account has permissions of domain admin, and Exchange admin to see the tabs using the AD Useres and Computers.

Enjoy.

colonytire ,

Running into a bit of a problem installing Exhcnage Management Console.  It is telling me it can't install the Management Console, because administrative tools are not present.

I have, however, installed Administrative Tools 2003 on this XP Pro machine.  I'm assuming that perhaps my version of Exchange 2000 doesn't recognize the Admin Tools 2003.

Is there an Exchange Admin Console 2003 I can download from somewhere?

Thanks!
