Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Are you trying to launch the tools from the active directory machine? If not does the machine have admintools.msi installed on it? Is the primary DNS server of this machine the same address as the AD machine?

What are the exact error messages you are getting?

Have you checked that DNS is up and running?

Are there any errors in the event log of the AD server?

Clear any or all of the above issues up and you will be able to open your consoles again.

    What exactly do you mean by "im unable to open the active directory and other admin tools" ? do you get errors ? Also, did you make any changes to the server recently ? does this server have anti-virus software installed ? what troubleshooting steps have you taken so far ?

    Check your event logs and post any errors you see there. Post the entire error that may be related to the problem. Reboot the server if you have not done so. Is this true of all servers on your network or just one?
