While working on an old Exchange system this week I wanted to take a look at the ‘autodiscovery’ SCP in AD Sites and Services. Read any post, and you will se that you need to enable ‘Services Node View’ in AD sites and services. To do that you simply right click then go to View > Show Service Node. However, I didn’t get that option?
This was driving me crazy for a while, and it looks like it’s a bug in the Microsoft Management Console. If you look at the image (above) you will see Active Directory Sites and Services is selected (i.e. its blue). However it wasn’t when I ‘right clicked’.
You need to manually left click ‘Active Directory Sites and Services’ to select it.
Then once selected, right click, and then you get the correct menu.
Yes that’s annoyingly simple, and yes it took 20 minutes to find out what I was doing wrong!
