I have Exchange running on Server 2003 fine. When I try to install the managment tools on Vista32 I get this error:

The Active Directory Schema is not up-to-date and Ldifde.exe is not installed on this computer. You must install Ldifde.exe by running 'ServerManagerCmd -i RSAT-ADDS'"

My schema is fine what gives?

You don't have the Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) Tools part of Remote Server  Administrative Tools installed yet which are needed by the management tools, even though your schema is fine.

Active Directory Domain Services Tools - Includes Active Directory Users and Computers, Active Directory Domains and Trusts, Active Directory Sites and Services, and other snap-ins and command-line tools for remotely managing Active Directory Domain Services. Server for Network Information Service (NIS) Tools includes an extension to the Active Directory Users and Computers snap-in and the Ypclear.exe command-line tool.

If you go to a command prompt (with admin privs) and run: "ServerManagerCmd -i RSAT-ADDS" you should see the following...

Start Installation...

[Installation] Succeeded: .
[Installation] Succeeded: [Remote Server Administration Tools] Active Directory
Domain Services Tools.
Warning: [Installation] Succeeded: [Remote Server Administration Tools] Active D
irectory Domain Controller Tools. You must restart this server to finish the ins
tallation process.

Warning: [Installation] Succeeded: [Remote Server Administration Tools] Server f
or NIS Tools. You must restart this server to finish the installation process.

<100/100>

Success: A restart is required to complete the installation.

Is powershell installed?

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Ok, the server Admin Tools are installed but still can't execute "ServerManagerCmd -i RSAT-ADDS", and get the same message when trying to install Exchange Tools.

Sorry for being away...

Assuming you installed RSAT correctly on Vista with SP1, follow the steps in the following article (under "Getting to the RSAT Tools") to enable Active Directory Domain Services Tools on the computer.

This should resolve your installation issue of the Exchange Tools.
