Active Directory problem on Server2003 std edition

Dear All

              My server 2003 standard when i open dsa.msc, below error message pop up, although i have reinstalled "administrator tools pack" i still getting the error, any other solution to fix this problem ?

MMC cannot open file C:\windows\system32\dsa.msc
This may be because the file does not exist,

Already installed:  

Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 2 Administration Tools Pack

Do you know what version of MMC you're running?  You should be on version 3.0...  See the following Microsoft KB:  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/907265

Let me know if that doesn't solve your problem.

I assume you have browsed to C:\windows\system32\ and checked for the existence of dsa.msc?

Can you copy dsa.msc from a working domain controller that is at the same service pack level?

i have tried to download mmc 3.0, when i tried to install it, it said the install version is older than the one i currently had, and also i have tried to copy dsa.msc in other server 2003 which is running the same version, but that server 2003 is a member server, and it doesnt work
