Win 2000 Professional - Access Control

How do I change the Access Control on a Win 2000 Pro from using the local User Manager to be set to use the Domain Controller's Active Directory?

-Install the 2000 remote administration package.
-connect to the domain controller with \\servername\admin$ find adminpak.msi (I think its in system32.. Install it..
-You can then open AD Users & computers locally.

Housenet,

I seem to have a mental block.  This isn't the first time I've done this but for some reason, I'm not getting it.

In Windows 98, you go to Network Properties and click on the Access tab and select User Level Access Control and enter the Domain.  I know there is a dialogue box like this somewhere in 2000 but I can't find it.

I don't want to administer the AD from the workstation, what I want to do is to assign security rights (printer, etc) from the AD list of users.

Do I still have to install adminpack?

No, but the 2000 Pro system must be a domain member.  If it is, then the domain user list will be available in the security tab.

geoffryn gets the points.   For some reason when I was there yesterday, after joining the domain I couldn't see the users in the Active Directory.  Today I can.  Maybe I was blind yesterday but geoffryn is clearly correct because I can see them today.

Thanks all
