I am trying to use  Active Directory Users and Computers to connect to domain controller. the Admin tools attempt to authenticate using my local credentials and do not give me the opportunity to provide the admin login.

How can I manage the Domain controller without having to login via remote desktop.

I have already installed the Remote Admin Tool RSAT

Can you Left shift + right click the shortcut of the Admin Tool, then use run-as with the AD credentials?

When I Run As with alternate credentials ( my admin account) it comes back right away with: The User Name or Password is incorrect.

I need to specify the domain controller by Ip when I get in, but then it says invalid credentials.

I need a way to specify the domain controller by IP and the username /password at the same time

I tried the Run As command with mmc, and no luck:

C:\>runas /user:ddr\administrator mmc
Enter the password for ddr\administrator:
Attempting to start mmc as user "ddr\administrator" ...
RUNAS ERROR: Unable to run - mmc
1326: The user name or password is incorrect.

So, if I understand correctly, you can't resolve the domain name to ip-address? Maybe you can add the domain name/controller into the hosts file (C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc)...

Sometimes it helps using the unc way, like administrator@ddr.local for example ...
