    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

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

    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

    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.

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