A tip listing some tasks you cannot perform using Active Directory Administrative Center.

There are a number of Active Directory management tasks you cannot perform using ADAC, such as the following:

  • Delegate administrative control over Active Directory OUs and the objects they contain.
  • Create and manage sites, site links, subnets and similar objects.
  • Create trusts between domains or forests.
  • Directly edit the configuration, schema, or application directory partitions.

To perform such tasks, you need to use the following familiar tools:

  • Active Directory Users And Computers
  • Active Directory Sites And Services
  • Active Directory Domains And Trusts
  • ADSI Edit

This tip is excerpted from my latest book Training Guide: Installing and Configuring Windows Server 2012 from Microsoft Press.
