In Reader to Reader: "Usrmgr Not Just for Domains" (August 2002, http://www.winnetmag.com, InstantDoc ID 25549), Pico Nazzaro explains how to connect to User Manager for Domains on a local machine. In a large organization, opening User Manager for Domains and entering the machine name is time-consuming. A faster alternative is to open a command prompt and enter

usrmgr \\

The same trick works for Server Manager for Domains. Open a command prompt and enter

srvmgr \\

You can enter the target machine's name or IP address (if you don't know the machine name) for machinename. If you have multiple domains, open a command prompt and enter

srvmgr \

or

usrmgr \

This trick works on Windows XP Professional Edition, Windows 2000, and Windows NT systems.
