  • ds* tools is first available in Windows Server 2003. However you can use the tools against a Windows 2000 SP4 DC from a Windows XP or Windows Server 2003 Member Server by installing the adminpack.msi (Administrative Tools for Windows Server 2003)

  • Hi,

     

    I agree with Christoffer Andersson. We can run these tools on Windows Server 2003/Windows XP as a work-around.

     

    Here is a link for adminpack.msi:

  • Do you know that windows 2000 support has been ended long back and if you are still running windows 2000 DC, time to upgrade it at least to the windows 2003 SP2 to avoid security issues. There is no more service pack,patches being released for windows 2000 from the MS and its high time to convince your client to plan for upgrade and also you can reduce downtime and avail more benefits, if you upgrade to windows 2008 R2. New OS windows 8 has lot to offer for AD improvements and you can perform simple ldap query using AD administrative console center.

    Either, you can use admintool.msi on XP system or use win2k3 (as Chris has said)or upgrade to windows 2008 r2 for better way to manage AD and utilize new features.
