NT Server Tools / XP

I can't get the NT Server Tools software, which comes on the NT4 media, to operate under Windows XP.

I use Server Manager and User Manager quite a bit, and now have an admin using an XP machine at her desk.

Is there a solution, or an XP version of NT Server Tools?

Have you tried running them under compatibility mode?

XP has no server tools as the tools always came with the server OS. XP does not have a server variant.

I have not - but I'll report back here after I look into that.

On the XP SP1 CD you should be able to find Adminpak.msi under the /i386 folder. This is the Admin Tool set for W2K and above.

My understanding is that you can STILL use these tools to admin an NT 4 Server.
