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.

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

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.

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.
