Hi,

Does anyone know how I can get the Terminal Services Profile tab to appear in active directory when I'm looking at a users properties?

I was wondeirng if I would need to install an addon for this or if it was a simple case of enabling something in the settings?

In AD Click View and select Advanced and then choose the properties of a user and see if it displays the Terminal Services Profile Tab.

Hi Jenkinsme,

I tried your suggestion but this didn't work. I have now got additional tabas available that weren't there before but the one i'm looking for isn't there.

Thanks

Have you attempted to create a new user in AD and see if that new user has a Terminal Services Profile tab?

How to Repair the Database
WARNING: After you complete the procedure that is described in this section, Esentutl.exe performs a low-level repair of the data file. Use the repair command only on the advice of qualified service personnel, because this command can cause data loss. You can use this procedure to repair only the data that ESENT knows about. As a result, the repair operation may eliminate data that is key to the safe operation of Directory Service. 1. At the Ntdsutil command prompt, type files, and then press ENTER.
2. At the file maintenance command prompt, type repair, press ENTER.

Verification is displayed.

NOTE: It is recommended that you perform a Semantic database analysis. Refer to the "References" section of this article for resources that describe how to perform the Semantic database analysis.
3. To exit the tool, type q at the command prompt, press ENTER, type q, and then press ENTER.


This I would use as a last resort but it may fix your problem if you have a corrupted AD. In most AD scenarios I would recommand always having a 2nd DC just for scenarios where AD would become corrupt on one of the DCs.

Are you using the ADU&C on a Win2k3 box, or Vista?  From what I'm reading, it's not in the Admin Pak for Vista...or at least not yet.
