Hello lazik,

For ADUC you need to install the adminpak? rktools is the resourse kit? the adminpak is on the server 2003 CD or it on the server in windows\system32\adminpak.msi what adittional tabs are you looking for? for exchange tabs you need to install the exchange administrative tools as well


Regards,

Apart from the adminpak (or the ADUC console in it), you need to copy and register the acctinfo.dll on your XP machine as well. It's a dll that dynamically retrieves some data from AD and displays it in the tab, nothing more.

I have copied and registered the acctinfo.dll on my DC and workstation, I can see the tabs on my DC but not on my workstation and the ws has been rebooted.  Do I need to install thhe adminpak since the registration went successful?  Thanks for the info.

No run it on the XP machine - you can then click

Start > Administrative tools > Active Directory Users and computers

Well it worked on one network but not the other, we have two seperate networks here, the error I receive on the one when trying to install the adminpk is.. The Windows Installer service could not be accessed. This can occur if your running Windows in Safe mode or if the Windows Installer is not correctly installed- The Windows Install service under services is disabled and also on the network that this all worked on Any Ideas?  Thanks for the info thus far PeteLong
