Is there some easy way to restore the Active Directory (Sites & Services, Users & Computers, Domains & Trusts) applets, WINS applet, DNS applet, and DHCP applets in the Win2K3 Server Control Panel ?  We had a DC machine that crashed and after restoring the AD those applets were missing.  From what I understand this may have something to do with some registry entries and/or some CPL files in a particular folder - not sure of the specifics though.  The functionality of all of those applets works fine from this machine when using the MMC Add-Ins, however.  TIA ...

If I understand you problem you are missing the shortcuts to these tools in the Admin tools folder in control panel.

Have you tried to reinstall the admin tools?
you can do this from running
%windir%\system32\adminpak.msi
c:\windows\system32\adminpak.msi

or you could download the tools
