(http://support.microsoft.com/kb/170997/EN-US/ )Availability of Windows NT 4.0 Server Tools for Windows 95
To install Windows NT Server Tools on a computer running Windows 95 =================================================================== 1. Confirm that your boot drive has at least 3.0 megabytes (MB) of free disk space. 2. Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel. 3. Double-click Add/Remove Programs. 4. Click the Windows Setup tab, and then click Have Disk. 5. In Copy manufacturer's files from, enter the \Win95 directory (local, CD-ROM, or network drive) that contains the Client-based Network Administrations Tools files (there must be a Srvtools.inf file in this directory), and then click OK. 6. Click Windows NT Server Tools, and click Install. Windows NT Server Tools are installed in a \Srvtools folder on the computer's boot drive. 7. Manually adjust the AUTOEXEC.BAT file to include C:\Srvtools in the PATH (if drive C is the boot drive). For example, if you boot from drive C, append the following to the line that starts with PATH: \srvtools Note You must restart the computer for the new path to take effect. Verifying your password for Windows NT Server Tools =================================================== When you use the Windows NT Server Tools on a client computer running Windows 95, a message appears at times, asking you to log on or enter your password. When you run the Windows NT versions of Server Tools on a computer running Windows NT, you do not need to supply your password separately. These password prompts ensure that you have administrative privilege for the server you administer. Establishing trust relationships ================================ When you use the Windows NT Server Tools, you can create trust relationships between domains but you cannot verify them. Be careful to enter correct passwords for the trust relationships. Logging on before using Windows NT Server Tools =============================================== If you are not logged on and you start any of the Windows NT Server Tools, you will get a message that says that the computer is not logged on to the network. First log on to the network and then run any of the Windows NT Server Tools. To remove Windows NT Server Tools ================================== 1. Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel. 2. Double-click Add/Remove Programs. 3. Click the Install/Uninstall tab. 4. In Uninstall, click Windows NT Server Tools, and then click Add/Remove. Note If you want to remove the directory for Windows NT Server Tools (usually C:\Srvtools), you must do this manually. Understanding Windows NT Server Tools ===================================== Windows NT Server Tools enable you to use a computer running Windows 95 to administer servers running Microsoft File And Print Services For NetWare, and Microsoft Windows NT Server. Windows NT Server Tools include Event Viewer, Server Manager, User Manager, and extensions to Windows 95 Explorer. You can use these extensions to edit security properties of printers and Windows NT File System (NTFS) file objects on computers running Windows NT and to administer File And Print Services for NetWare and NetWare-enabled users. When you install Windows NT Server Tools, the installation program: * Copies the Windows NT Server Tools files to C:\Srvtools (if C: is the boot drive). * Adds "Windows NT Server Tools" to the Start button Programs menu. * Adds extensions to Windows Explorer that enable you to change security settings when viewing an NTFS drive or a print queue on a computer running Windows NT. Note * To use any of the Windows NT Server Tools you must have administrative privilege at the computer you choose to administer. To use Event Viewer =================== 1. Click Start, point to Programs, point to Windows NT Server Tools, and click Event Viewer. 2. Enter the name of a computer running Windows NT Server or Windows NT Workstation. To use Server Manager ===================== 1. Click Start, point to Programs, point to Windows NT Server Tools, and click Server Manager. 2. Select a computer to administer. 3. To see computers in another domain, click Select Domain on the Computer menu. To use User Manager for Domains =============================== 1. Click Start, point to Programs, point to Windows NT Server Tools, and click User Manager For Domains. 2. Click a user account or group to administer. 3. To see accounts in another domain, click Select Domain on the User menu. To edit security properties of printers or NTFS-file objects on computers running Windows NT ========================================================================= 1. Double-click Network Neighborhood, and then double-click the name of the computer to be administered. 2. Click the printer or Windows NT File System (NTFS)-file object you want to administer, and then click Properties. 3. Click the Security tab. 4. Make the changes you want to the permissions, auditing, and object- ownership settings. Notes * The following methods for selecting an object to administer do not work: * Administering print queues through the Printers list in My Computer; these print queue objects represent print queues local to your Windows 95 computer, even if the queue is redirected to a Windows NT Server or Windows NT Workstation print queue. * Using the Windows 3.x Print Manager, which no longer exists in Windows 95; the Printers icon in the Main group of Program Manager is just a shortcut to the Printers list in My Computer. * Using File Manager. Installing Windows NT Server Tools does not add a Security menu to File Manager as it did for Windows 3.x. To share FPNW volumes and manage shared volumes =============================================== 1. Connect to the server running File and Print Services for NetWare. For example, to connect from the command line, type: net use z: \\servername\c$ 2. In Windows Explorer, right-click the drive for the server running File And Print Services For NetWare, and then click Properties on the menu that appears. 3. Click the FPNW tab. A dialog box appears, containing buttons that enable you to manage shared volumes and to share directories as File And Print Services For NetWare volumes. Note * For other administrative tasks, use Server Manager and User Manager, which include options for administering File and Print Services for NetWare, and NetWare-enabled users. These are the same Server Manager and User Manager options that are available on computers running Windows NT Server with File And Print Services For NetWare.
