Are there any Active Directory tools for sbs 2008 that can install on a windows xp PC?
What I am looking for here is to allow one user to domain user passwords through a control panel.

You can install the 2003 admin pack on XP and have them use ADUC or create a custom taskpad view.

You will need at least Vista SP1 to remotely administer the server from a workstation:

Well looks like it is not for XP. But you could run a virtual Windows 7 on your XP box and that would give you the options.

As someone else posted, the 2003 admin pack will install on xp and allows basic ADUC work such as password management.

While RSAT is needed for a wider range of tasks, it isn't required for basic ones. I'd also argue that RSAT would encourage skipping the console wizards and bad things would ensue.

HTH,

I do agree with cgaliher unless you are just using it to reset passwords or some other very minor things you need to use the SBS wizards otherwise you will break the functionality.

yes it is, it's the same as the Active Directory Users and Computers you see on SBS2008 just an older version.
