(2009-06-12) Active Directory Gateway WebService Is Available For ‘Legacy’ OSes

Posted by Jorge on 2009-06-12


The Microsoft Active Directory Management Gateway Service lets information technology professionals manage Active Directory Directory Service and Active Directory Lightweight Directory Service instances that are running on the same server. The Active Directory Management Gateway Service is available as part of Windows Server 2008 R2 and available as a separate download for some previous versions of Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2003.

Information technology professionals can use Active Directory Module for Windows PowerShell or Microsoft Active Directory Administrative Center (ADAC) to manage Active Directory Management Gateway Service instances on servers that are running Windows Server 2008 Service Pack 1 (SP1) and later versions and Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 2 (SP2) and later versions.

The Active Directory Management Gateway Service provides the same functionality as Active Directory Web Services on Windows 7. After you install the Active Directory Management Gateway Service, the service runs as the Windows Server R2 Active Directory Web Services service

For more info see KB article: The Active Directory Management Gateway Service is now available

It looks like it is not yet available for download. Don’t worry, it will be soon, I guess, RGHT? J

UPDATE: To test the new AD Gateway WebService for W2K3/W2K8 you can download it from Microsoft Connect. This assumes you have a Windows Live ID. ADWS Connect site can be found here.

Cheers,
Jorge
