Can anyone assist me gettiing the "Active Directory Users and Computers" icon on my desktop. I have it on one computer but need on a second. I suspect it is an extra resource on a CD, but forgot how to do it! (Windows 2000 network) Thx in advance...

1) Are you wanting just the icon, as in you already have the shortcut in control panel -> admin tools -> AD users & computers?

Or

2) Do you want to install the adminpak which will allow you to "run" AD?

If 1 then just open up the folder in control panel. Right click and drag the icon to the desktop either copying or creating a short.

If 2 then in the i386 folder on the server running w2k server run the install of adminpak.msi ... this is the default placement of the msi file.Hope this helps.

Run the msi file from the computer on which you want to have the AD shortcut. Then, just follow the steps from choice 1.

Hi,
Dave is correct but the path is actually
c:\winnt\system32\adminpak
Good luck

Just to keep it straight, the path I have above is from the Active Directory server. From the workstation that you want to set up the tools
go to Start>Run>Type \\server name\c$ ...then browse to winnt\system32\adminpak. Of course use your own server name. That should do it. Jim
