SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:
  • In a Windows Server 2003-based domain, you install Windows Deployment Services (WDS).
  • You install Windows Server 2003 on a member server in this domain by using an installation media on which Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 2 is slipstreamed.
  • You install a localized admin pack on this member server, such as a German admin pack.
  • Hotfix 955364 is installed on this member server.
In this scenario, you cannot manage WDS images by using the "Active Directory Users and Computers" Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-in from the member server, and you receive an error message.

The following is a sample error message in German:
Fehler beim Bestimmen des Serverbetriebsmodus.
Der Betriebsmodus des Remotinstallationsserver kann....
Note This issue does not occur in the English version of Windows Server 2003.

CAUSE

This issue occurs because some Multilingual User Interface (MUI) binaries that are related to the "Active Directory Users and Computers" MMC snap-in are not included into the localized admin pack.
