dsa.msc in Windows 2008 Server

haven been spoiled by having the dsa.msc console to remotely administer active directory users and computers from a member server in a windows 2008 domain, I was stunned to find out that this feature that was readily available in windows 2003 server was not part of the default installation for windows 2008 server.

The image shows the options that should be selected in order to add this feature back into or onto your member servers. It only takes several minutes to add and doesn't require a reboot.
