Run a server MCC file locally.
MMC are Microsoft Common Console Document.
I'm in a lab test right now and I'm trying to figure this without any luck. I have a Windows 2003 server who is Domain Controller. I have a XP workstation who member of the domain. I want to be able to log from the workstation and to be able to change data from the "Active Directory Users and Computers" console remotely. Sadly, when I run the MMC file call "dsa.msc", it doesn't open the Active Directory Console and created an error. Anyone knows how.
By the way, I'm log as admin on the XP machine and when I'll be able to run the console remotely, I'll run it using the runas command.
