    Couldn't find it anywhere! Did Apple take this off on purpose? Are they planning something new?

    And also something to mention, Server Admin 10.5.6 and Apple Remote Desktop 3.2 DOES NOT WORK on Snow Leopard. The only way to manage my Server is to use Screen Sharing app <-- IT SUCK.

    It IS beta software; I would expect some thing to be broken. I'm sure Apple could probably give you a hand with some of those issues.

    Nope. They're gone on purpose - the appropriate preferences moved to System Preferences, instead.

    Directory Utility is moved to Core Services folder, and is not searchable anymore. It can be accessed from System Prefs -> Accounts

    It is searchable, if you enable the inclusion of system files.

    Systemfiles

    Hi Dave

    In case you haven't figured it out yourself, please look at calderone's post before yours. The image shows the Finder window with the option "Systems Files" to show. As soon as you type, say, "Directory" in the search box, you will have the availability of this option (and others).

    Quickest no-muss, no-fuss method of accessing Directory Utility in 10.6 is to navigate to System Preferences->Accounts, then select Login Options. Look for the Join button next to Network Account Server, then click on Open Directory Utility.
