Tab missing in AD (not the dailin tab!)

Hey guys,

got a problem. When we look at users, (all users in our AD) when we go
to the properties, to either change any bit of info, there is a TAB
Missing. The TAB is called "network ressources".

We are using server 2000. We do not do the changes on that server, we
are using XP pro machines to connect to the AD, and do it from XP.

Now we need this tab to show up to input these ressources.

We have tried to install an ADMIN Pack from Microsoft, and we installed
the Service Pack 1 for it. Still no luck
We also installed the System Tools from the Exchange 2003 server cd,
and still no luck..

At first, we had the Network tab we needed, but no Dail In Tab. we
found the microsoft info on how get the dail in tab, we fixed it, the
network resources tab, takes off.

We back tracked, still not working.

Anyone know how we can get this tab to show up?

Thanks Much.

Sounds like whatever DLL is needed is no longer registered. However,
there's no Network Resources tab available on my default installation.
Which means it's probably a 3rd party extension, in which case running the
installation again or contacting the vendor to get the name(s) of the DLL(s)
to register should fix.

Note. When extensions are made, the tabs only show up on the DCs with the
correct binaries. For example, you can install Echange System Manager on a
DC and get the Exchange tabs. You won't get those tabs on a DC that doesn't
have ESM installed.

I have never seen a "network resources" tab. Well, not in a default
installation. I use the ALTools.exe utility everywhere I go and it adds an
additional tab. Not sure about the "network resources" tab, though.
