Disaapering Admin tools server 2012 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Some of the admin  tools I use on a
    daily bases Have come up missing.

    The first time it happen GOP
    disappeared it. The only way I can get to them is with MMC

    At the time I was primary working on
    GOPs it was there when logged off but when I cam in the fallowing day
    it was gone. I can't access it in Admin tools anywhere its simply not

    We didn't look into it at the time
    because there was other things going on and I could still get into it
    using MMC.

    This week three more Tools disappeared
    all of which I was using before hand regularly.

    The have disappeared from admin tools

    I tried recreating my profile and they
    are still gone. I've made new Admin accounts and still nothing


    Active directory users and computers


    the one for setup VPNs 9 (cant remember
    the exact name)

    We have a single windows server With
    2012 on it.

    We have no anti virus protection.

    We do have a firewall

    Our Vpn is setup using a static IP

    anyone idea would be very helpful

    At times I've gotten a error saying
    “control panel\admin tools” not found

    When go there all the admin me tools
    are present but the ones missing.

    And the services the control are still
