  • I hope you downloaded the TRIAL version and not the BETA version!



    Are you using a Windows 64-Bit version? Then you must start ADUC with the following commandline dsa.msc -32

    Are you opening Active Directory on the OCS Machine itself? If not install the Client tools on that machine


    You cannot prepare the domain more than once

  • You can use OCS Server Administrator to do this. First you must enable users for OCS then you can configure users.


    Its all done with a right mouse click in the users tree node.

  • If you are asking for a scripted solution to enabling users for OCS, take a look at my latest blog entry:

  • Install the Administrative tools into your Activer Directory Server.

    That should work well after it

  • For some reason if you use "dsa.msc /?" it will work.

    Very strange but i have seen it in a number of sites.

  • I had the same problem. With 2007 R2 the administrative tools is not installed on the OCS server. I had to install those tools provided with the OCS2007R2 CD on our domain controller itself. After that, on the domain controller I could open ADUC and right click and all the OCS options were there along with the Communication tab in properties

  • Hi,

    You can able to view this tab by this method

    1. Go to Member server which you installed OCS - logon server as  a  doamain administrator - start run - type " dsa.msc"
