From a win2k workstation, how do you adm

By dreyfuss89 ·
From my windown 2000 workstation, I am trying to administer local users and groups on a remote windows nt 4.0 server. On the NT 4.0 server I am able to view the eventlog, services and shares, however when I go to access local users and groups, I get an error message error 5: accesss has been denied. I am listed as an administrator on the NT server, and I am using the same account on the local workstation that I using to try and access the remote server.

Is there any other thing that I needto do to enable this to work.

I am connecting to the server via computer management in Administration Tools,of the local workstation.

There is no way I am aware of to do this. As you have discovered there are some snap ins for MMC that do not cross platforms. Microsoft has no tool available for download, as they want everyone with NT4 to upgrade. (More money for them) You might try looking for a third party utility or if you know how to program or know a programmer have one custom designed.

The best Nt/2K/XP admin tool I know of is Dameware NT Utilities. With it, you can manage a remote NT machine.
www.dameware.com

Download it and try it.
