  • Dialin

    Version 8.5 does not show the Dialin Tab. But does on version 7.3
    And I am using the same INI file for both.

    What OSes are the two installed on?

        From what we understand, RAS management is no longer supported from the newer client OSes by Microsoft.

        As a quick test, on the computer that is missing the tab you can go to Tools->Settings->View and check the box to Show RAS dialup information. Then view a user and see if you get an error or the tab.

            Look at Tools->Settings->Active Directory. Do you have the box checked or unchecked to Show shell property pages by default for user objects?

                Okay, still not sure why you see it on the other computer, but RAS management is removed from newer client OSes.

                  The version isn't the issue?

                  Is there a fix?

                    A fix is not available at this time. Its unclear why Microsoft removed this functionality. See here:
                    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/975448

                    and here:
                    http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Foru...42-ebadbdb4e105

                    The problem is the functionality is gone and Hyena no longer has the Microsoft functions to write the RAS data back. Its also not stored in AD like other things, so we have to go through a function to write the data.

                    That is also why is missing from ADU&C.

                      Ok thanks. I still wonder why it still works on version 7.3

                        Send screenshots of the working version to [email protected]. Also let us know what happens if you modify anything on that dialog.

                            Just for a test, I reinstalled version 7.3 on the box that didn't have the dialin tab.

                            And now it is there and I am able to make changes.

                              I am looking into this to explain this behavior.

                              Thanks for staying on this.
