I'm interested in using a visio 'shape' to link to a server and have it display on my desktop
active directory users and computers for that server. In this case the server is a active directory DC. Is this possible? and how would I use the 'hyperlink' in visio to do it.

Thanks Much

I believe MS have an AD plug in for visio but you'll need the professional or premium version of Visio.  The diagramming tool for Visio is supplied with that version.

Take a look here too:

I have the professional version of visio 2003 so.... I will look around for the plug in
with a little luck someone will post a link to it while I'm working on it on this end.
