Where is my snap-in?

The “Active Directory Users and Computers” MMC snap-in is obviously an invaluable tool if you’re dealing with Windows domains and user/service accounts on a daily basis. Yesterday I found out that it isn’t included in Windows 7, neither can you add it as a feature through the control panel. Turns out you need the “Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 7” -┬á a ~220MB download which you can get here. It’s probably also worth noting that “this software can be installed ONLY on computers that are running the Enterprise, Professional, or Ultimate editions of Windows 7; it cannot be installed on target servers that you want to manage.”
