    Jackd can you post the text of the error messages please, the screenshots are too small to make out.

    Question - Are the tools installed on the same computer that you are having problems attaching to the domain? For the snap in's to work you need to me attached to the domain.

    Just a quick thought (not sure if it will work for you or not), when I was having problems with the adminpak tool from the Windows Server 2000 CD, I downloaded & installed the Windows 2k3 admin toolkit.

    Like I said I don't know if it'll work for you (but it's worth a try). Hope you get it sorted.

    -Ken

    p.s. the 2k3 adminpak.msi does work with both the Server 2k3 & 2k family
