Missing Delegation tab

Why the Delegation tab might be missing.

To enable a remote Windows Server 2003 server for EFS file encryption, you need to right-click the remote server in Active Directory Users and Computers, select Properties, select the Delegation tab, and enable the Trust this computer for delegation to specified services only option. At least, these are the steps you should follow according to http://technet2.microsoft.com/windowsserver/en/library/3eaa0062-4759-4b3e-bb7d-c2531e7452b91033.mspx?mfr=true.

The other day an IT guy I know tried to do this but when he opened the properties of the remote server in ADUC, there was no Delegation tab! Why? Because he hadn’t raised his domain yet to Windows Server 2003 domain functional level.

Moral: Those “smart” properties sheets, which add or remove tabs based on other configuration settings, can be confusing! Plus you can’t always trust the documentation because sometimes it assumes things. Oh well.
