Domain Administration from an NT Workstation

Administering Windows NT domains doesn't have to take place only at a domain controller. You can also administer domains from an NT workstation. To do so, you need to install the NT Server client-based administration tools from the NT Server 4.0 installation CD-ROM on the workstation. From the \clients\srvtools\winnt folder, run setup.bat. The files will install into the \%systemroot%\system32 folder on your NT machine. This installation doesn't create shortcuts for you but only copies the files. Table A lists the tools you need to create shortcuts for.
