All is in the title. I've just upgraded a windows 2k3 server to 2k8 and I'm looking for the old ADMT. It seems that every thing has change.
For help.

ADMT?  That is the migration tool.  Are you looking for the old adminpak?  
If you are looking for adminpak then install RSAT
If you were looking for ADMT you can get that from the Microsoft download site.

Sorry I misspell.. I'm looking to RSAT you're right.
But I'm sorry, but the link you gave me didn't work. (the link inside the blog)

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

Thanx, but every link I've found befre posting and the last one you gave me, send me to download RSAT for windows Vista or 7, but I want it for Windows 2008 R2.

I need to manage my AD from this server (the AD is 2k3 Windows)

Add it using add features. (see screenshot in the first blog)  You should not need to download anything
Go into server manager add features >> you should see the Remote Server Admin Tools in that list, pick what you want (AD, DNS, etc)
