Server manager is for Windows 2000 Server, NOT for Windows 2000 Pro.

Are you in an NT domain?  Server Manager is an NT utility not a W2K utility.  If you are in an NT domain just connect to the NT domain controller's admin$ share (C:\winnt), go to the system32 directory and copy the svrmgr.* files to your winnt\system32 directory.  Then create a shortcut on your desktop (or whereever you want!)  You can also copy the usrmgr.* files and do the same for user manager.

If you in a W2K domain and want the W2K admin utilities, you need the server installation CD.  Just run the adminpak.msi as protofj instructed and you will get those admin utilities.

If you are in a W2K domain and want to use the old NT utilities, you need to connect to an NT 4 server as I stated above.  The server manager and user manager utilities that loaded in the W2K install, won't run.

I need to run a server manager equivalent on a W2k pro.
My domain is W2k and there are W2k pro and NT nodes.
What is the W2k equivalent of the NT server manager utility?
Could it be run in W2k pro?

Right-click on My Computer and select Manage (or go to administrative tools and select "Computer Management").  You will have the equivalent of Server Manager.  You can then just right-click on the name and choose what server/workstation to connect to.
Also the admin pack that has been talked about will give you more management functions.

Yes, that's what it is used for, to remote manage the domain from an administrative workstation.
