AD Integration Missing RRS feed

  • Question


    I'm setting up OCS 2007 SE in a dev environment. I completed all the install steps and everything is "running", but the OCS tab in AD is missing. I'm not able to add users to a home server. I installed OCS Admin Tools on the DC I'm managing users on. Any ideas?

  • On your OCS machine start mmc, then load the user management from your DC. Now you can configure the users.

    Remember you have to work from the OCS machine.

  • If you are by chance running on an x64 platform, the solution is in the FAQ forum:



    If you are having problems on an Edge server, open the Computer Management console, as their is no seperate MMC snap-in for the OCS console on an Edge server.

    As mentioned in other posts, if you are running on a 64-bit machine, you must run ADUC in 32 bit mode to see the OCS UI extensions.  To do this, run mmc.exe -32 dsa.msc.

  • (This assumes "User Management' refers to the Active Directory Users and Computers snap in) ADUC must be run on the box with OCS installed to get the OCS options for a user. Running it on the "DC" does not include the options unless OCS is installed on the DC.

    More of a clarification than a change to what was presented. 



    Lab setup - 2 W2K3 SP2 servers (32-bit), one DC, one with Exch 07 SP1 & OCS 07.

  • Close your ADUC and click Run=> type "dsa.msc -32"
    This will open ADUC in 32 bit mode. Now you should be able to see the ocs tab in Active directory users and computers...
