Using ADAM administration tools

Updated: August 22, 2005

Using ADAM administration tools

Active Directory Application Mode (ADAM) comes with several administration tools. The ADAM Setup Wizard installs ADAM administration tools when you install a new ADAM instance. In addition, you can use the ADAM Setup Wizard to install the ADAM administration tools only, without installing a new ADAM instance. For more information, see Selecting components to install.

To open a command prompt from which to run ADAM administration tools, click Start, click All Programs, point to ADAM, and then click ADAM Tools Command Prompt.

The following table describes ADAM administration tools and their purpose.
