Hello,
yesterday, i've upgraded my forest from windows server 2003 R2 to Windows 2008.
the update completed successfully
i've done the same for one of my 4 domains, with no problem.
i've used also the following commands:
adprep /domainprep /gpprep
adprep /rodcprep
I've installed a 2008 domain controler in one of the domains
Since the upgrade, each time i open the properties of a user account, i can't see all the tabs : general, account, member of have disapearred
I've check the replication between all the DC, no problem
event logs are clean.
Moreover i don't have authentication problem
if i use ADSIedit, i can see the missing properties of my users.
This problem does not affect other objects as computers or groups
Many thanks for your help.

Where do you run the dsa.msc console?
Did you try RSAT tools?

At tis moment, the FSMO roles are stored on 2 2003 servers
My 2008 server has no role
They all have been restarted with no change.

I have contacted microsoft, the problem was due to my RTE FAX server which had modified the schema
the solution was to:
Open adsiedit on 2008 domain controler
Connexion to naming context configuration on root domain
Open CN=DisplaySpecifiers
Open CN=409
Open properties for CN=User-Display
Open attribute adminPropertyPages
Add Value 1,{6dfe6485-a212-11d0-bcd5-00c04fd8d5b6}
