Delegation Tab missing Windows Server 2008

When trying to setup Kerberos to work with SharePoint you need to setup the app pool account as trusted for delegation. you may find that the delegation tab is missing in AD in Windows Server 2008, this is "as designed", the delegation tab will appear only after an SPN is created for the service account.

So do setspn -A HTTP/intranet.domain.local DOMAIN\Account from a command prompt in the famr and then go to AD and search for the DOMAIN\ACcount and you will see the delegation tab appear.
