Hi,

Can I know what is the purpose of 'Add Workstations to Domain' in Windows 2000 Professional? I can't figure it out.

I thought 'Add Workstations to Domain'  is only for use on a domain e.g. a windows 2000 server

does this mean that i can add any workstation, connected in a domain network, from a client machine using win2K pro to the server?

so i can add workstations not only through win 2k server but also through win2k pro?

Yes. You can add it on the Active Directory server or directly from the Windows 2000 pro. All you need to have is to be a domain administrator privileges, during addition, you'll have to put in the domain admin credentials.

Cheers,
