Where are the tools located to remotely administer a Win2k AD server from either a Win2k Professional workstation or a Windows NT 4.0 workstation?

I believe you'll have to do this with Terminal server, in management mode.

INstall Terminal services on your 2000 servers and set them for Administrative mode. You can use the thick TS client or download from Microsoft the tswebsetup.exe. This will create a virtual directory on a web server that will allow you access your servers thru a browser.

I can facilitate remote control via VNC already, I'm not necessarily interested in terminal services at this time. Thanks for posting :)

I think what you are looking for is the adminpak.msi file. It will be on the Windows 2000 Server CD in the i386 directory.

Double-click on the file and it will install all of the administrative tools on your workstation.

This answers your question if your talking about using things like Active Directory Users and Computers & Active Directory Sites and Services, etc, from your workstation instead of having to run them locally on the server.

If you want remote control of the Domain Controller you need terminal services, as the two posters above advised. If all you want to do is manage active directory from the a workstation on the LAN, then just install the adminpak.
