Administering Windows Server 2003 from Windows Vista

December 25th, 2006 by Patrick Elliott

Want to know how to get the Admin Tools to work on Windows Vista?  Thanks to the Windows Server guys, there is a KB article here!  —

From the Windows Server Weblog:

“One of the more popular questions on our Windows Server “Longhorn” discussion forums is around the Windows Server 2003 Administration Tools Pack. In particular, people have been asking why they can’t use the Admin Pack on Windows Vista. It can be installed, but it gives error messages and many of the administration tools seem to be missing or are not properly configured. Some of these issues are related to User Account Control and not having the necessary administrative privileges when attempting to install the pack.

Well help is at hand! We’ve just released a new Knowledge Base article describing how to get the Admin Pack working on Windows Vista, and describing some of the limitations that will still exist.

Note that this does not address managing Windows Server “Longhorn” from a client machine (either Windows XP or Windows Vista). We are working on a new version of the Admin Pack for Windows Server “Longhorn” and we will provide an update on our progress with this in the Beta 3 timeframe.”

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
