  • I need to turn off Automated Deployment Services (ADS) in my Windows Server 2003.  How can I do that?  I do not see ADS in the list of system services.

  • On Windows 2003, you will not see the service listed.  This is a new feature for Windows 2008 Active Directory.  If you want to boot the server without loading ADS, you'll need to restart the server, hit F8 and start it in Directory Services Restore Mode.
