Activating user in windows 2003 domain with office communication server 2007 R2

I have succesfully finished my installation of OCS 2007 R2. I am having issues figuring out which admin tools to install to allow me to administer it now in my windows 2003 domain. Any help would be appreciate as I cant add any users yet

insert the OCS DVD, run the setup enterprise or standard (as previously you selected), from the right pane select install administrative tools this will allow you to enable and configure users for OCS

I have installed the tools. Just not sure where to go now to edit the users. Do I need to install the domain tools as well on the server? Remember OCS is on a windows 2008 box but my domain is windows 2003

You will need the AD tools on the server as well, as it integrates together.

sorry
if you instaled the OCS on windows 2008, then install the windows administration tools, select the full tree if you don't know mainly we need active directory users and computers

OK, not sure if you can help me but now I get this error when I try to activate someone

Unable to retrieve the Active Directory user object's Email attribute.

Do I need to install the exchange tools on the OCS box as well?
