Hi:

We've Windows servers running Windows 2003 server.

For some reasons, we no longer see "Services" in the menu of Admin Tools.

We can start "Services" console by typing "Services.msc" in Run command.
However, we want it show up the Admin Tools.

If you know how to do it, please help.

Thanks,

Somits

Since the msc is still there, all you need is to recreate the shortcut.
Open the Administrative Tools folder in Explorer, create a new shortcut in this folder.
Target: "%Systemroot%\system32\services.msc /s"
Run in: default is "%HomeDrive%%HomePath%", but it doesn't actually matter what you enter here.
You'll find the icon in %Systemroot%\system32\filemgmt.dll
