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.

You can telnet to remote server. for more infornation;en-us;299942&Product=win20

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
