Hi Experts,, and Thanks.
I am having a problem with a Windows 2003 Server that I was just given control of. I am currently unable to make any changes what so sever inside the Active Directory Users and Computers. I can't add, remove, change or do anything to any users/computers. I keep getting the following error, and then it closes the Window.

Microsoft Active Directory - Exchange Extesion
The system cannot find the file specified.
Facility: Win32
ID no: c0070002
Microsoft Active Directory - Exchange Extesion

Note: MS Exchange is also not functioning, but I believe that issue is some how related to this one. Thanks for you help Experts!

Hi, I suggest the following:
1) run domainprep - check if it solves the problem.

2) try to install admin tools on some windows XP, open AD users and computers and try if here you can manage the domain. You will find the admin tools on Server 2003 installation CD in the \I386\adminpak.msi.

sounds to me like an invalid shortcut

try to create one yourself by doing the following:
start>run> MMC
file> add / remove snap in
add > active directory user and computers.

if this works save the current setup to your desktop for a new shortcut
