RSAT and ADUC for Vista - Update to add tabs for Terminal Services Profile, Environment, Sessions, and Remote Control

Ned here. After much strife, here is the hotfix to get RSAT AD Users and Computers to include tabs for:

• Terminal Services Profile 
• Environment 
• Sessions 
• Remote Control 

960890 Some tabs are not available in the properties of a user account in the Active Directory Users and Computers MMC snap-in after you install Remote Server Administration Tools (RSAT) on a computer that is running Windows Vista
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;960890

If you have been hacking away at this previously to make it work, make sure to unregister and remove your server DLL's before installing this update.

  • Thanks for the update Ned, this is a useful one for us server administrators. Now if you can just add back in the Managed Computer dialog back in.... ;o)

    Will this also be in the Windows 7 RSAT?

  • Yup.

  • What I'm wondering is if there will ever be Windows Server 2003 support tools for Vista.  I still have to switch back and forth between my Vista laptop and my XP workstation when I need to run replmon or repadmin.

  • You shouldn't need to switch to use repadmin.exe, that is part of Vista RSAT. You are free to install the 2003 Support Tools on Vista to get REPLMON, they will work (they are just not supported).

    I actually have an article on this in the pipeline, should be out next week.
