I had to replace the hard drive on my Windows 2000/exchange 2000 server. Exchange is working and the website is back up and running....but I have not event viewer and only 6 administrative tools.  Do I need to reinstall windows 2000 server or is this an add on? Should I remove service pack 4 first?

It probably is still there - maybe the link is just missing. Try

start eventvwr.msc

on the command line.

Try looking for EVENTVWR.MSC (and other missing console items) in your %windir%\SYSTEM32\DLLCACHE.

ie:
C:\WINNT\SYSTEM32\DLLCACHE\EVENTVWR.MSC
