  • Add command to right-click context menu in dsa.msc

    Hi everyone

    I use ultravnc to remotely administer the computers in my domain. The user's name is in the description field for each computer, so I can see who uses what computer in ADUC.

    At the moment I have to see the computer name and then (remember it! and then) enter that into the ultravnc hostname field to start controlling it.

    It would be so much more efficient if I could simply right-click on the computer and 'manage with vnc' or similar in the context menu, with the hostname being passed to the vnc viewer (and maybe, if I get REALLY lazy, the admin user/pass).

    Anyone have any ideas on where to start? I use XP SP3 to administer, it's a W2k3 domain.

          Sorry, I never did find a solution for this. I didn't try too hard to look into what code needed writing, either.
