How to use mmc to manage remote server

I want to use mmc to manage some 2003/2000 servers in NT/AD domain.
However, if i just create a mmc at server and copy it to XPl. Some service can not work, such as DHCP, DNS, etc...
Any idea can i use old mmc in XP? Or i must create a new mmc in XP?
Thanks.

Ideally, you can install ADMINPAK.MSI to the XP machine you use for your administration. You'll just want to make sure you're using the ADMINPAK.MSI from the latest service pack installed on the servers.

Once that's installed, create MMCs to your heart's content.

Hi Dickchan,

Download the adminpack for Windows server 2003 from the below site and install the same in your XP box.You can then access the AD through this tool.This tool provides by microsoft as a MMC to access your NT\AD service from your XP machine.

when you are in mmc for a local computer, when you try to add the module the first time it will prompt you about which computer are you trying to monitor, (only available in certain modules, event viewer for example). just name is differently is what i always done.

in mmc, you go to action, connect to ,  you can type the IP or hostname of the server or computer you want to manage.   Note that only certain features(event viewer, DNS, services, etc) are available for remote use.

Any of the answers regarding installing the adminpack are correct. The OP simply never responded to the correct answers.
