asked on

installing 2012 Active Directory mmc on windows 7 workstation

I want to be able to administer AD Users and computers (console) as well as the MS exchange management console for Exchange 2007.
I had it working on my old computer but do not remember where I downloaded the local installs from.
We are on a exchange 2007 and our DC is 2012
Thank you

Thank you, I did this but only found the dhcp and dns tools I needed. not the Exchange or AD console.
Have you downloaded exchanhe management tools?

all of the AD tools are in the RSAT
make sure they are enabled in programs and features
Take a look at this excellent video.  You can't use the Windows 7 RSAT, but this video describes how you can remotely manage 2012 servers by setting up one 2012 server to publish the Server Manager (or other admin apps) using remote webapps.

You can install the Exchange 2007 management tools, but only if your Windows 7 workstation is 64-bit, IIRC.

The video did not seem to offer applicable help
are they enabled in programs and features?

Sorry for the delay, I was away. I did get the install completed. Now I get intermittent errors telling me the domain controller cannot be found. It opens and work 50% of the time.
