    It was a web front end for AD. It was very basc but ideal for primary schools who needed to add the odd user or machine. Also yu could manage groups.printers etc

    Viglen Classlink XP uses a web interface for its AD management.

    Re: web version of AD

    I just did a google search for 'web front end for active directory' and came up with a couple of possible commercial products:

    http://www.namescape.com/
    http://www.webactivedirectory.com/

    and I'm sure there are a few more.

    Re: web version of AD

    Yes ... all of this can be done through the Management section of IIS if you have it running on a DC.

    For most people the idea of running IIS on a DC is scary as historically you had to spend time hardening the server, panicing everytime there was a new patch and checking the logs to see if people had tried to break it.

    It is far easier to do it in taskpanes or via RDC.

    Now ... the web front end in Server 2003 is quite robust ... you can set up self0signed certificates to run it over https and generally have an easy life ...

    We don't do it here are we have the adminpak loaded on the loacal machines of the techies ... but Technet would be the best place to look.

    Or if you like scripting you can build your own ... and I would recommend Thomas Eck's ADSI Scripting for Windows 2000 server as a good place to start.

    Doesn't RM CC3 run a custom web-based AD front end?
