Dial-in tab and RSAT RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I've been able to get a user's terminal services information to show up in Active Directory Users & Computers on my Vista machine.  I would love to see the Dial-In tab, has anyone out there been able to make the tab appear?

  • Thanks I had seen that already.  I probably should have made my original post a little clearer, I have the terminal services tabs showing up now however I still can't get the 'dial-in' tab to show.

    We still use it so it's somewhat of an inconvenience to no longer have it on my primary console.

  • hi,


    you have to copy some files from the 2008 server to your vista client. if you use a win32 vista you have to copy these files from a server2008 x86, if you use x64 os the server must be on x64 too.


    copy the following files from the server (here its a 32bit os) %systemroot%/system32:


    mprsnap.dll, rasuser.dll and rtrfiltr.dll to the vista system32 folder.


    now copy the following files from the server (here its a 32bit german os) %systemroot%/system32/de-DE (en-EN when using english os):



    mprsnap.dll.mui, rasuser.dll.mui, rtrfiltr.dll.mui to the vista system32/(your-language) folder.


    now start a cmd using runas admin on the vista client and enter: "regsvr32.exe rasuser.dll"

    re-open your ADUC console... there should be now a dial-in tab.

    btw, this workaround is not officially supported but it works ;-)
