Server 2003 - Users & Groups Not Showing Up In Computer Management

Have a Server 2003 box on a domain, and am not seeing Users & Groups within the Computer Management interface.  How can I turn this on?  this is an older server and was provisioned before I arrived here and I don't seem to have much luck with this thing...and it is a DC!  I've attached a screen shot of what I am referring to...

You need to use the Snap-in for Active Directory IUsers and Computers.
Depending how you system is setup, you can certainly get to it from here.
Control pAnel>Administrative tools>AD users and computers. DC's don't have local users

Odd....I'll check again, but believe I have another peer DC in which I can get to it.  If I can't login to it using domain creds, I cannot login locally using the Administrator account?

You do not have a local admin account on a DC. It is a domain controller and therefore has a domain account. Any other member server will allow local login through a local or domain administrator account but as soon as you make it a DC, you lose the SAM adatabase and in effect the local admin account is the domain admin account.
Hope that helps

So, in summary, it's perfectly normal to not see the local Users and Groups on a domain controller :o)
