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?

Re: NT Server Tools / XP

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.
