I uninstalled my SQL Server Client Tools 2005 from my machine and after that when I went back to SQL Server 2000 Enterprise Manager, I cannot see the entire EM screen. I think the msc file has been removed or something happened to it

DSaran -

We have investigated this issue and determined at this point in SP2 that we can't take the fix. There is a simple work around - you just need to reinstall the SQL 2000 tools should take about 2 minutes.

Thank you for providing this feedback.

Please let us know if you have any questions.

1. The Enterprise Manager should be displaying the list of servers, organized in the same way as it was before the uninstall
2. The Enterprise Manager was disturbed, in sense the servers registrations was not displayed and I get a blank mmc window

HI DSaran,

Thanks for recording the exact repro steps. This appears to be something that is supported. Your description of the result: "The SQL 2000 Client tools should not be disturbed" is vague.

Could you please provide screen shots of:

1: What you consider acceptable (Correct EM display)
2: What you consider to be 'disturbed'

Also include the versions of the tools involved in your scenario:
For instance SQL Server 2005 SP ? -- & Same for EM.
