fix
Because the MMC display is kept in a file with an extension of .MSC on each Assistant Admin's workstation hard drive, a custom view can be saved and used by others. To provide a standard MMC view for other users, please perform the following steps:

  1. Install the latest version of the Directory and Resource Administrator MMC client.
  2. Customize the MMC view by deleting views not required and creating customized views.
  3. Change the MMC from Author mode to one of the user modes as described in article NETIQKB299.
  4. Close the MMC client and click Yes when prompted to save changes to the .MSC file.
  5. Copy the .MSC file from the following location:
    • For DRA 6.4 and later, this file is called Directory and Resource Administrator.msc and is located in the folder C:\Program Files\NetIQ\DRA.
    • For DRA versions prior to 6.30 SP1, this file is called NetIQ Administration.msc and is located in the folder C:\Program Files\NetIQ OnePoint\OnePoint.
  6. The Assistant Admins should already have the MMC client installed on their workstations. Paste the custom .MSC file to the following location:
    • For DRA 6.4 and later, this file is called Directory and Resource Administrator.msc  and should be copied to the folder C:\Program Files\NetIQ\DRA.
    • For DRA versions prior to 6.30 SP1, the file is called NetIQ Administration.msc  and should be copied to the folder C:\Program Files\NetIQ OnePoint\OnePoint.
  7. The Assistant Admins should now be able to launch the custom MMC.
