Can't see DHCP Scope and AD Question.

    I work at my company's IT Department and since yesterday, I'm testing Vista
    Business (RTM). I do tech support and, as was the case when using XP, I
    the Windows Server 2003 Admin Pak tools. I have two questions regarding it:

    1) When opening the DHCP tool, and adding a server, I can't see its scope.
    When expanding the server tree, I'm only shown the "Server Options", nothing

    2) We have several domains, and when administering different domain's ADs, I
    would do a "Run As" for the AD Users and Computers and run it with that
    domain's admin. Now, when I shift+rightclick and choose "Run As", the app
    opens to my default domain, doesn't allow me to choose with which user to run.

    Hi Josh,

    Thanks for the pointer. I tried your script, but unfortunately the problem
    with those two tools persists. Ran it as a local (am also domain admin)
    admin, but no luck. Tried re-running after a reinstall, just in case, same
    thing unfortunately.

    I have loaded Vista RTM and have had an issue with the DHCP tool as well.
    Same issue as Daniel. I ran the script to register all the DLLs, but the
    tool still does not work.
    I'm assuming these are known issues. Does anyone know if/when there will be
    a good 2003 admin pak available that is Vista compatible?

    Same here. I suspect the number of users experiencing this issue is larger
    than just the few mentioned here.
