Administering 2000 server from a remote dos prompt

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.win2000.advanced_server (More info?)

We have a number of domains on our WAN. There are no trusts set between them and i need to be able to add in users and users to groups etc from a remote dos prompt similar to the way that Windows NT allowed using user manger from a dos prompt.
i know the server name, ip address and domain name of the remote servers.
Looking for advice if this can be done.

    If you have 2003 active directory domain you can manage 2000 domain

    The command-line tools are included with Windows Server 2003 and are
    installed with the Admin Pack and the Windows Server 2003 Setup program.
    The command-line tools can be installed and run on computers that are
    running Windows XP Service Pack 1 and Windows Server 2003 Server. Microsoft
    does not recommend that you install these tools on a Windows 2000-based

    The command-line tools can target Windows Server 2003 and Windows 2000
    domain controllers. Windows 2000 domain controllers that are administered
    by the command-line tools must have Service Pack 3 or later installed to
    prevent errors in LDAP signing.;en-us;298882&Product=winsv
