I installed the server admin pack for windows 7 to manage server 2003 however I cannot manage exchange features with it on Active Directory. Is there a way to get this to work. Hitting the Advanced Features does not work.

After installing that tool, you need to enable those features from add/remove windows components and then select remote server management tools.

If you have done this already, what is the exact problem you are facing?

best solution (and to prevent screwing up your Win 7 system) is to use another XP system, or enable Virtual XP mode and install the 2003 admin tools and Exchange System Manager in that.  I would not play around with the DLL solution that is frequently posted, as that can have other side effects on your system, and not to mention run the risk of messing up AD.

Prem - that EE thread was more than a year and a half old.  Things have changed :)

Check the screenshot ... I've been running ESM 2003 on Windows 7x86 for about 6 months.  A collegue of mine renamed the file, so I'm not sure where I had got it from originally (it may be the Vista file linked to above), but here is the link to the file we have used to install ESM on three Windows 7 machines:

Note:  I've not tried this on a 64-bit version, on which I've heard it doesn't work.

PowerEdgeTech, i have to hand it to you, this software is a piece of genius, ESM works fine on my 64bit system, but alas no luck with ADUC and Exch tabs on the user accounts, but its a start.  Will test on a 32bit system shortly.
