Your questions are a little ambiguous but I will give it a shot.

1.) I assume you mean the LOCAL ADMINISTRATOR password on each of the NT Workstations. To do this remotely run User Manger for Domains, unde the USER file Menu choose SELECT DOMAIN. In that Dialog Box type \\COMPUTERNAME for the name of the computer whose Administrator Account you want to change. Be sure to include the "\\" [also know as Whack Whack!] Then just go to the user administrator and change his password.

2.)I would love for this to be possible but without SMS or another third party vendors intervention you can only remote install applications from the client. In other words you would have to initialize the installation on the server from the client. To do this you could start the installation on the client through a net logon script. Or if you really wanted to punish yourself you could look in the NT RESOURCE KIT for a utility REMOTE that allows you to start remote commands on a remote client.But you have to star

I don't understand your use of the word "Administration's." The procedure for changing the domain password is easy, just use User Manager for Domains, swipe the password, and type in the new one.

You may need to open the User menu in User Manager andselect, Select Domain.

To change the local passwords on any machine, you can still use User Manager, and Select Domain. Just enter the domain name as \\computername. (you have to have permissions on the target machine).

Yes, there are high end and low end ways to install software applications. Some can just be installed by e-mailing shortcuts to the \\computername\path\setup.exe (user has to answer prompts, if a unattend-type directive is not available); others use SMS and Unicenter-type operations; finally, there is the pc anywhere-type solution.

I use a product from Funk software (WWW.funk.com), called Proxy, which falls in the PC Anywhere category to manage my remote machines. All of my servers are rack-mounted and headless/keyboardless

Q1: As the other says, access with \\<computername>

Q2: Software like MS SMS makes it possible to let the user acceppt the remote installation of the software package. BUT! you can allso create a package which will be mandatory installed, that isafter a given date or time. This makes it possible to force the installation of critical software.

1) I hope you are talking about changing NT Administrators password from a workstation. In that case you should have the administrators tool in the workstation which you can get by going to the add remove program in the control panel then give the path of ur NT server Cd and ther you have to go to servtools and select the workstation you are running and choose usermanager from the list and press ok. IT will open the usermanager on ur window and u can change the password provide you have logged in as the administrator of the Domain.
2)SMS is the ultimate solution but you can also try unattended installation.
