EXCHANGE 2000 ACTIVE DIRECTORY TOOLS

By ILoveNetworking ·
I have a WINDOWS 2000 DC (let's call it A) holding all the FSMO roles. I have another server on the same subnet which is also a DC (Active Directory installed - called B).
Exchange 2000 SP1 is installed on server B. The problem is that the Exchangetools only show up if I use the "ACTIVE DIRECTORY USERS AND COMPUTERS" from server B (on which Exchange 2000 is loaded.) The Exchange tools don't show up when I run the "ACTIVE DIRECTORY USERS AND COMPUTERS" from server A. I did run /forestprep and /domainprep before installing Exchange 2000 to modify the schema. Both servers replicate just fine.
Is this behavior by design?

Yes, by design. However if the tools are located in an accessible share, you can also add them as MMC snap-ins to the 'Users and Computers' on server A. Dunno the name of the MMC snap-in, but if you cannot find them (or the procedure...) in the manuals you can view the properties of MMC in server B.

At your service,

Run an Exchange 2000 install on Server B and select ONLY System Manager from the components screen. You can then administer your E2K boxes form Server B

Woops - I meant run the install on Server A (re-reading your question!) Duh.
