How to I install Exchange admin tools/Windows 2003 Server admin pak onto Windows Vista Enterprise?

When installing Exchange admin tools, it say to instal  IIS.  Installed IIS and installation completed, but when I go to enabled the service it is not there.  Don't know what to do next.  I need to install Exchange admin tools and Windows 2003 admin pak onto my Vista SP1 Enterprise Ed for AD management purposes.
NOTE: From research from Microsoft there's Microsoft Remote Server Administration Tools (RSAT).  Did RSAT replaced the Exchange 2003 admin tools and Windows 2003 Admin Pak?  Please let me know.  Thank you very much...

Ummm, what service are you looking for.  I think it is called IISADMIN.  If you restart, it should start anyway.

RSAT replaces the Windows 2003 adminpak.msi on a Vista machine.  You need to install this first before you try to install the Exchange system manager.  Here's an article about installing the RSAT:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/941314
This article assumes that you have Vista SP1 installed - I don't believe the RSAT will work without SP1 already installed.
Once you have the RSAT installed, you can installed the Exchange System Manager. Here's a link to instructions on how to do that:

PLEASE NOTE: Microsoft does not support installing the ESM on a Vista workstation that runs Outlook.  However, I have a method that works fine if you need to run Outlook on your Vista workstation at the same time as the ESM.  Post back if you want those instructions.

hypercat,
I would need to run Outlook (Office 2007) on my box running RSAT and Exchange system manager.  Please post your instructions.  I will test your recommendation on Monday.  THANKS...


theras2000,
I must double check the services on Monday.  THANKS...

Just be aware that apparently ESM and Outlook together are not supported on Vista
http://exchangepedia.com/blog/2008/08/exchange-system-manager-and-outlook-on.html
But it sounds like it still works anyway.
This has more info too http://msexchangeteam.com/archive/2008/08/18/449598.aspx

Hi, Kanani. In order for Exchange and Outlook to co-exist, what you need to do is:
1.  Uninstall Outlook 2007.  This will not remove your profile.  Just be sure when you reinstall it that your profile name is the same.
2.  Follow the instructions in the articles I noted above.
3.  Reinstall Outlook 2007.
I have done this a number of times at my client sites and have not experienced any problems with the operation of both applications together.

BTW, I should state further that this works in the following Vista environment:
1.  Logged on to your Vista machine with local admin rights.
2.  Using group policy or local policy, set the UAC policies as shown in the attached screen capture.
Without these environmental settings, I don't know if my method will work.  I haven't tested it except under these circumstances.

UMMM - #1 above, local AND domain admin rights, as well as Exchange admin rights, that is, since you have to have the domain and Exchange admin rights to use the domain and Exchange management consoles.

Hey hypercat I'm sorry I totally missed that you said the bit about Outlook & ESM not supported.  I didn't mean to restate you.

hypercat & theras2000,

WOW!  You just cannot do everything on one computer anymore.   I have not tested the above yet and will get back to both of you.  THANKS...

Sorry I was too busy at work and I did not get back to both of you sooner.  Due to the fact that I was busy, I had someone test the above solution and it worked finally.  Thank you very much...
