  • install the adminpak tools

    im having problems when trying to install or access the admin pak tools in a mcse 2003 virtual pc lab(windows server 2003 sp1 as domaincontroller+windows xp sp2 as workstation)
    i have two jobs to do:
    1)install the admin pak tools:
    i have to log in the domain from the workstation and run \\domaincontroller\admin_tools
    and install adminpak.msi(not to install admin pak tools from the 2003 server cd because an ordinary user should not have permission or rights to the admin tools)
    the first step is a preparation for the second step which is
    2)install the group policy management console on the client:
    i have to connect to \\domaincontroller\admin_tools(from the first step),double click the dotnetfx.exe file to install the microsoft .net framework 1.1 and click install and double click the gpmc.msi in the admin_tools folder to install the group policy management console.
    so my problem is in the first step:
    when i try to run \\domaincontroller\admin_tools,i get the message of no network provider accepted the given network path.
    any help would be appreciated
    thx

    Please provide more info:
    - what error message do you receive?
    - do you have a share named "admin_tools" on the server?
    - the user you're logged in on XP has permissions on that share (if it does exist)?

    Added: Also, please read the forum rules. Especially number 4.

      Adminpak tools have to be installed on your client

      The clients tools on XP have to be installed from a Windows 2003 server

      The file is located on all Windows Server 2003 Servers in this path (if you used the default paths)

      c:\windows\system32\adminpak.msi

          The Admin.Pak tools can be downloaded and installed directly from Microsoft's site. No need to install them on the server and then on the XP workstations...
          If you need to install it on several computers, then download it once, put it on a network share, give the appropriate permissions to whoever needs and that's all.

            They are not installed on the server by default, but are located in the above mentioned location by default. So no need to go to the WWW to get them if you have it available locally.

              Also as they are an MSI you could use group policy to distrbute them to local computers.

                Indeed, you are right. I just missunderstood what you said. Sorry.
