I have seen this posted in other locations, but none of them answer my question.

I have a 2008 R2 server that I am trying to load Active Directory snap-in through the MMC. It is not available, and I realize that I need to register it.

I am logged in with an account in the Exchange Admin and Domain Admin groups, and open CMD as Administrator. I type 'regsvr32 schmmgmt.dll' and get this error:

The module "schmmgmt.dll" failed to load.
Make sure the binary is stored at the specified path or debug it to check for problems with the binary or dependent .DLL files.
The specified module could not be found.


The schmmgmt.dll does NOT exist anywhere on the server, that I can tell. It does not exist in the %systemroot%\System32 or the %systemroot%\SysWOW64 folders.

Why would the file not exist, and more importantly, where can I get it from?

I was able to run the register of that .DLL, but it did don't give Active Directory as an available snap-in. Instead it gave {632CCCF4-CBED-11D0-9C16-00C04FD8D86E}, so something must not have worked correctly.

Any thoughts on that?

I would do a system file checker
sfc /scannow from an elevated command prompt.

After running the sfc /scannow, it did not find any integrity violations.

If it is working fine for you, there must be a deeper problem that I cannot determine

Is this server running active directory?  Notice the diff between yours and mine?  I have several active directory entries showing.  Mine is running Active Directory( it IS the Domain Controller)

And that would be it... This server was built following the design of a previous server, that also didn't have Active Directory features installed.

Lesson learned. Thank you for sticking with me and helping me figure this out!
