Dail-In Tab is missing from DSA.MSC console

Hi,

We are using Windows server 2003 Domain controllers. Our client machines are running on Windows XP. When I use dsa.msc console from my work station I am not able to see the Dial-In tab in user properties.

But form my workstation If I connected to a Domain controller then I can see the this Dial-In tab in dsa.msc console.

Why I am not able to see this tab when I open dsa.msc form my Workstation? All the users are facing the same problem?

Can any one help me on this?

Thanks in Advance.

According to Microsoft, "The Dial-in tab that configures Routing and Remote Access dial-in or VPN access and callback settings is removed when the original-release version of the Administration Tools Pack is installed on Windows XP-based clients.

Fixes or workarounds for this problem include the following:
• Install Q837490 on the pre-Service Pack 2 Windows XP-based client. This hotfix adds the remote access dial-in tab on pre-Service Pack 2 Windows XP-based clients that are running the original-release version of the Windows Server 2003 Active Directory Users and Computers snap-in, Dsa.msc, that is installed by the original-release version of the Windows Server 2003 Adminpak.msi.

• Install the Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 2 version of Adminpak on Windows XP-based computers that have Windows XP Service Pack 2 or later versions installed.
• Use Remote Access Policy.
• Start Active Directory Users and Computers from a Windows Server 2003-based computer or from a Windows 2000-based computer that is accessed over Terminal Services or Remote Desktop Access.

Please reinstall Administrative Tools and check if this solved your problem. The newest adminpak is Windows Server 2003 R2 SP2. Go to any of that server into C:\Windows\SYSTEM32 and copy adminpak.msi to a workstation and install it again. Then, you shouldn't face any problems.
