Installing the GUIs on a Windows NT Workstation

Follow these steps to install or run the GUIs from a system running Windows NT Workstation:

  1. Ensure that the Client-Based Advanced Server Administration Tools subset (ASUADM401) is installed.  This automatically creates a special disk share called astools

  2. Map a network drive to the astools disk share.

  3. Select the folder that corresponds to the version of the Windows NT Workstation operating system. For example the winnt.351 folder for Windows NT 3.51 or the winnt.40 folder for Windows NT 4.0.

  4. Either:

    • Install the GUIs by running the setup.bat program.   After the GUIs are installed, disconnect the network drive to the astools disk share and create shortcuts to the srvmgr.exe and usrmgr.exe files on the desktop or in the Start menu.

    • Run the GUIs remotely by selecting the folder that corresponds with the system CPU type, then start the GUI by double-clicking on one of the following files:
    • srvmgr.exe file for the Server Manager GUI
    • usrmgr.exe file for the User Manager for Domains GUI

     

Installing the GUIs on a Windows 95 System

Follow these steps to install the User Manager for Domains and the Server Manager GUIs on a system running Windows 95:

  1. Ensure that the Client-Based Advanced Server Administration Tools subset (ASUADM401) is installed.  This automatically creates a special disk share called astools

  2. Map a network drive to the astools disk share.

  3. Select the Add/Remove Program icon from the Control Panel, then select the Windows Setup tab.

  4. Click on the Have Disk button. Use the Browse button and click on the drive that specifies the connection to the astools directory to which you connected in Step 2.

  5. Expand the Win95 folder.

  6. Select the srvtools.inf file and click on the OK buttons in the Open window and in the Install From Disk window.

  7. Click in the box next to the Windows NT Server Tools entry and then click on the Install button in the Have Disk window.

  8. Click on the OK button after the files are installed, disconnect the network drive to the astools disk share, and create shortcuts to the srvmgr.exe and usrmgr.exe files on the desktop or in the Start menu.

  9. Edit the autoexec.bat file to add Srvtools to the path and reboot the system.  For example, if you boot from drive C, edit the autoexec.bat file and either append Srvtools to the PATH statement or, if there is no PATH statement, enter the following line:

   SET PATH=%PATH%;C:\Srvtools

The installation program performs the following tasks:

  • Copies the Windows NT Server Tools files to the srvtools directory on the boot drive

  • Adds "Windows NT Server Tools" to the Start button Programs menu

  • Adds a "Windows NT Server Tools" program group to the Program Manager, which is compatible with Windows 3.x

  • Adds extensions to the Windows Explorer so that you can change security settings when viewing shares on a system running the ASU software, Windows NT Server, or Windows NT Workstation software

The following are Windows 95 considerations:

  • Some administrative tasks require that you log on or enter your password for verification before you can perform an action. This is to ensure that you have administrative privilege for the server from which you are administering.

  • You can create trust relationships between domains but you cannot verify them.

  • You cannot administer print queues through the Printers list in the My Computer window. These print queue objects represent print queues local to your Windows 95 system, even if the queue is redirected to an ASU server print queue.

  • You cannot use the Windows 3.x Printer Manager. The Printer Manager does not exist in Windows 95; the Printers icon in the Main group of the Program Manager is a shortcut to the Printers list in the My Computer window.

  • You cannot use the File Manager in the Program Manager window. Installing Windows NT Server Tools does not add a Security menu to the File Manager as it does for Windows 3.x.
