I am working with a Windows 7 PC for a technician. For the life of me I cannot remember how to add the AD DS part of Administrative Tools. I tried the regsvr32 schmmgmt.dll  but it says the file isnt present.  Can someone please remind me how this works.

Thanks!

If you go to the command line and run

dsa.msc

Does ADUC come up?

Does this box have SP1 on it?

Thanks
