What happened to Server Manager

By jsarinana ·
In NT I could click on Server Manager and check properties of a server to see what resource are in use and/or what users have open on a server. How do you do this from Server 2003 or Server 2000 ?

Right click on the computer and select manage. From manage expand system tools and shared folders. This should have what your looking for.

Thanks mgonzales@myprovident.com That works, but do you know of any easy way to view other servers quickly, I know you can connect to another server and check it. In NT you would see a list of computers/servers and just click on the one you want to check, pretty simple/fast. In other words what if you had 7 servers how do you quickly check on them for open files.

If you want to do this from your workstation you need to install the ADMINPAK.MSI. You can download it from Microsoft. Then you will have access to 'Active Directory Users and Computers' from the Administrative Tools in Control Panel of the Windows 2000 workstation.

Then ....

1) Open Active Directory Users and Computers. This is under START | SETTINGS | CONTROL PANEL | ADMINISTRATIVE TOOLS. You will only have this available to you if you have installed AD Admin Tools.

2) Browse to the server, note only Domain Controllers will show up under Domain Controllers (duh), but remember that some servers may not be domain controllers and they will be listed under Computers.

3) Right click on the server and choose Manage. Expand Shared Folders and then click on Open Files.

I hope this helps.The old Administrative tools are now accessed via Administrative Tools in Control Panel after you install ADMINPAK.MSI.
