Add the TPM Management snap-in to MMC

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

The TPM Management console is a Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-in. You can run the TPM Management console as a stand-alone console, or add it to any MMC.

Membership in the local Administrators group, or equivalent, is the minimum required to complete this procedure.

Add the TPM Management snap-in to MMC

  1. Click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, then click Run.

  2. In the Open text box, type mmc and press Enter.

  3. If a User Account Control prompt appears, verify the information presented, and then provide the requested permission or credentials.

  4. On the File menu, click Add/Remove Snap-in.

  5. In the Available snap-ins list box, click TPM Management, then click Add.

  6. In the Select Computer dialog box, click Local computer.

    noteNote
    You can also use this method to manage the TPM on a remote computer.

  7. Click OK, and then click OK again.

Additional considerations

  • Depending on the configuration of your computer, the User Account Control prompt may appear. It will not appear if you are logged on with the built-in Administrator account (the local Administrator account is disabled by default in this version of Windows).

  • If User Account Control is enabled it can be configured to allow non-administrators to enter the credentials of an administrator to complete administrative tasks without being a member of the Administrators group.

  • By default, members of the local group Administrators have sufficient rights and privileges to complete this task. In your environment, security may be managed such that non-administrators have additional rights.
