Hi,
I read you article on How to create a customized MMC console (taskpad)?  and  I have a question. So far, the taskpads that I create will only run on the PC that has Windows Server 2003 SP 1 Administrative Tools Pack installed.  I want to create a taskpad that give helpdesk personnel limietd options such as only the ability to reset passwords.  I don't want  the other administrative tools such as "Sites and Services to be available for them. By creating a taskpad, I can limit what they can see and access by what features I build into the taskpad, but  If I have to install the Administrative tool pack to get the taskpad to work, it defeats the purpose. Is there a way to get a taskpad for one OU 's users to work on a PC that does not have the administrative tools installed?

In short, no - you need the admin tools installed on the PC before the user can use those snap-ins in the taskpad. I suggest you install the admin tools and then use NTFS perms to deny all access to the tools you don't want  them to have access to.

thank you jonathen.  It seems like Microsoft is a bit misleading becasue they say you can create these taskpads and email them to users that you have delegeted tasks to. They fail to mention that those users must install the admin tools. Thank you for filling in the details.
