Managing Domain Machine Accounts using NT4 Server Manager

A working add machine script is essential for machine trust accounts to be automatically created. This applies no matter whether you use automatic account creation or the NT4 Domain Server Manager.

If the machine from which you are trying to manage the domain is an MS Windows NT4 workstation or MS Windows 200x/XP Professional, the tool of choice is the package called SRVTOOLS.EXE . When executed in the target directory it will unpack SrvMgr.exe and UsrMgr.exe (both are domain management tools for MS Windows NT4 workstation).

If your workstation is a Microsoft Windows 9x/Me family product, you should download the Nexus.exe package from the Microsoft Web site. When executed from the target directory, it will unpack the same tools but for use on this platform.

Further information about these tools may be obtained from Knowledge Base articles 173673, and 172540

Launch the srvmgr.exe (Server Manager for Domains) and follow these steps:
