HELP!!!  I am trying to customize the installation of the RSAT for a Windows 7 Pro PC

Hi, I am trying to customize the installation of the RSAT for a Windows 7 Pro PC.  I use to be able to use command line switches and such to install the AD admin tools for XP PCs.  I know that the delegations is controlled on the AD itself, but I would rather not have the user even see the other AD tools, like AD Sites & Services, AD Domain Trusts, etc.  All I want them to see is the AD Computers & Users.

I was wondering if there is a way to customize installation of the RSAT on a Windows 7 Pro PC.

Thanks in advance.

Unless I am overlooking something on those links you sent, it is not installing the way I would like it to.

All I want installed is the ADUC...nothing else.  Is this possible with RSAT on Windows 7 Pro?

OK, I found in your link how to enable/disable using Dism command.  However, I am wondering can I turn off all the unneccessary features or do they all need to be there for ADUC.

Features in question:
RemoteServerAdministrationTools
RemoteServerAdministrationTools-Roles
RemoteServerAdministrationTools-Roles-AD
RemoteServerAdministrationTools-AD-DS
RemoteServerAdministrationTools-Roles-AD-DS-SnapIns
RemoteServerAdministrationTools-Roles-Ad-DS-AdministrativeCenter
RemoteServerAdministrationTools-Roles-AD-PowerShell

All I am looking for is giving access to certain AD OUs for certain personell.

Thanks in advance.

Sorry, I havent been able to actually test this yet. But have you tried "Restrict users to the explicitly permitted list of snap-ins" ?

No, not yet, but I have manually removed the shortcuts, .dll files and .msc files with success.

Not sure how secure that will be.

Ok, I believe it is working now.  Thanks to dstewartjr's link for "Restrict users...snap-ins" via GP.  And deleting the shortcuts under Administrative Tools.  I think this will work just fine.

Thanks again.
