Cannot Create Maintenance Plan - SQL Server 2005

Hi All,

I'm a little stuck with SQL 2005.

I have installed it on our server, and separately downloaded SQL Server Management Studio Express.
When I right-click on Maintenance Plans, I only get the 'Refresh' option.

I believe I'm using the full version of SQL 2005 as I downloaded it from our Volume Licence Site at Microsoft.

If anyone can help me, it'd be much appreciated. I have attached a couple of images to show what's installed / running as services.

Many Thanks,

Pete

Thanks for your replies. Is there anything Microsoft has to offer? Or have the maintenance plan sections been removed?

The tools I was looking for were on the SQL 2005 CD. I just had the wrong Management Studio installed
