SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:
  • You are running a Windows Vista-based computer that has the Windows Server 2003 Administration Tools Pack installed.
  • On this computer, you open administrative Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-ins.
In this scenario, some icons in these MMC snap-ins are displayed incorrectly. Or, these icons are missing.

For example, you may be unable to determine from a user account's icon whether that user account is disabled. In this situation, you have to open the properties dialog box for the user account and then confirm whether the user account is disabled.

This problem has been observed with the following MMC snap-ins:
  • Active Directory Users and Computers
  • Active Directory Domains and Trusts
  • Active Directory Sites and Services
  • Active Directory Schema
  • DNS
