  • MMC & AD Snap-in

    I have a problem with MMC
    • Log-in with domain Admin
    • Create a snap-in for Active Directory with
    • Log-in as normal user
    • Right click Run As (Domain\PowerUser)
    • I get an error message “c:\AD.msc The directory name is invalid”
    • Log-off domain Admin and log-in Domain\PowerUser
    • Double click on AD.msc
    • It open and working fine
    How I can make a normal user to Run As (Domain\PowerUser) the MSC file?

    I hope this clear

    Re: MMC & AD Snap-in

    Try running it this way,

    - Create a new shortcut:

    %windir%\system32\runas.exe /user:Domain\PowerUser "mmc.exe \"c:\AD.msc\""

    - Give the shortcut the name: "AD.msc"
    - Give it a new icon.

    -now, dubbelclick on the icon, and enter a password
