        The Active Directory® Management Gateway Service provides a Web service interface to Active Directory domains and instances of Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services (AD LDS) or Active Directory Application Mode (ADAM) that are running on the same server as the Active Directory Management Gateway Service.
        You can download and install the Active Directory Management Gateway Service on servers and domain controllers running the following operating systems:
        1. Windows Server® 2003 R2 with Service Pack 2 (SP2)
        2. Windows Server 2003 SP2
        3. Windows Server 2008
        4. Windows Server 2008 SP2

        Note:    You can install the Active Directory Management Gateway Service on writable domain controllers as well as Read-only domain controllers that are running Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2008 SP2.

        After it is installed on any of these operating systems, the Active Directory Management Gateway Service runs as the Windows Server 2008 R2 Active Directory Web Services (ADWS) service and provides the same functionality. For more information about ADWS, see What's New in AD DS: Active Directory Web Services (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=152772).

        Note:    The Active Directory Management Gateway Service does not support instances of the Active Directory Database Mounting Tool running on Windows Server 2008–based servers.

        The Active Directory Management Gateway Service enables administrators to use the Active Directory module for Windows PowerShell and the Active Directory Administrative Center running on Windows Server 2008 R2 or Windows 7 to access or manage directory service instances that are running on Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2003 operating systems in the previous list.

        Note:    Installing the Active Directory Management Gateway Service on your Windows Server 2008–based or Windows Server 2003–based servers does not make it possible for you to install the Active Directory module or the Active Directory Administrative Center (which is available only on Windows Server 2008 R2 or Windows 7 operating systems) on these servers.

        If the Active Directory Management Gateway Service on your Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2003 server is stopped or disabled, client applications, such as the Active Directory module or the Active Directory Administrative Center will not be able to access or manage any directory service instances that are running on this server.
    • Supported Operating System

      Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008

        1. Windows Server® 2003 R2 with Service Pack 2 (SP2)
        2. Windows Server 2003 SP2
        3. Windows Server 2008
        4. Windows Server 2008 SP2

        So that you can successfully install the Active Directory Management Gateway Service, the following components must be running on your server:
        • Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) or AD LDS server roles: you can install Active Directory Management Gateway Service only if you promote your server to domain controller by running Dcpromo.exe or if you create an AD LDS instance (or ADAM instance) on this server.
        • .NET Framework 3.5 with Service Pack 1 (SP1)
        • Software updates:
          • For Windows Server 2003–based computers and Windows Server 2008–based computers, you must download and install the hotfix that is described in article 969166 in the Microsoft Knowledge Base (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=153321).
            Note:    You can install this hotfix only when .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 is running on your computer.
          • For Windows Server 2003 R2 SP2 and Windows Server 2003 SP2, you must download and install the hotfix that is described in article 969429 in the Microsoft Knowledge Base (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=152375).
          • For Windows Server 2008, you must download and install the hotfix that is described in article 967574 in the Microsoft Knowledge Base (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=152377).
            Note:    You do not have to install this hotfix if your server is running Windows Server 2008 SP2 because this hotfix is built into the SP2 version of Windows Server 2008.
      • Note:    To install or uninstall the Active Directory Management Gateway Service, you must log on to your server with one of the built-in Administrator accounts.
