I have installed Adminpak in windows XP, I can open ADUC.
When I try to open DNS server it says server unavailable. I can ping it and I have domain admin right.
when I add a DHCP server and select the authorized server, it adds the server to DHCP console, but on the right pane it shows Access denied.
I can ping the DHCP server too by name and IP.

Any idea ?

Thanks

any domain users can run ADUC. You may not have used a Domain Admin account to run or manage those tools.

Are the DNS and DHCP servers both domain controllers or member servers?  If they are member servers, then it's possible that your user ID needs to be added to the Administrators local group on those servers.

You have to have enterprise admin rights to authorize a DHCP server
...that can be delegated to non EAs http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd183609.aspx but by default it has to be an EA.
Thanks

I realized that the DNS and DHCP servers are members of the parent domain, My AD starts from a child domain
I can see the DNS and DHCP when running ipconfig /all

If you want, you can add the domain admin account from the child domain to the domain local administrators group in your parent domain and vice versa so that you can manage those DCs including AD from one console.
