  • Shortcut to Active Directory

    Hi Guys
    I am sure this will be easy for you but I can't seem to be able to do it on my own.
    How to create a shortcut to Active Directory users on one of the PCs that is a part of a domain? We desperately need this shortcut to be able to create user profiles.
    To clarify, it is not the case that someone has deleted this shortcut, this PC has never had a shortcut to AD.
    Thanks a lot

    Have you installed the tools on the PC?
    (either adminpak.msi for 2003/XP or RSAT for 2008/Vista/7)

      HRUH? More info is needed.

      What OS is on the PC? Like Ossian asked, has the admin pack been installed onto the PC? If so, create a shortcut to dsa.msc .

      FYI ADU&C is NOT on a PC by default.

        Hi
        Thanks for the info, I don't think I have adminpak.msi installed on the PC (it is an XP machine).
        Where do I find this adminpak? Is it on the server installation cd?
        I would appreciate some more help on how to install it.
        Thank you

              Also it is on every Windows 2003 Server install:
              \\servername\c$\windows\system32\adminpak.msi
