  • Adminpak question

    Hi guys is this possible? I created an MMC in my DC and named it Admin Console. In that console I added these snap-ins ADUC, DNS, DHCP, Group Policy Management.

    Now I installed Adminpak.msi in a client computer. I did the runas command of dsa.msc and it works. runas /User: Domain\administrator "mmc %windir%\system32\dsa.msc"

    But of course it will only Run ADUC. But what i want is to run the console that i created in my DC which is the Admin console.msc

    Now is it possible? How can I do it?

    TIA

    Just do exactly the same steps on the client PC with the admin pack installed. I.e type MMC into a Run box, add the snap-ins you want, make sure they are pointed at the DC you want to manage and then save the console. You may well have to run mmc as the domain administrator for all of the snap-ins to work correctly.

    I've never tried it but I think you could probably copy your custom console from the server onto the client and it would work if you run it as administrator.

        Can you be more specific than not working? Error messages, do any parts work etc?

          How about
          START -- RUN
          mmc "path to custom console\name of custom console"

            Got it working now. Just had to wait for a few seconds for dhcp snap in to be working(it seems to be connecting to the server)..for the DNS i had to type the computer name of the DNS server. and for the GPOeditor. I installed GPMC in my XP. Thanks Guys..
