Are you an IT systems administrator that supports Windows 2003 servers? Maybe you have your own Windows 2003 servers in your office or home? Whatever the case maybe, if you're using Windows XP Professional as your main workstation for your everyday tasks you may want to consider installing the Windows Server 2003 Administration Pack on it.
The Administration Pack is designed for managing Windows 2003 servers. They allow you to remotely troubleshoot, or configure to the operating system without having to be physically at the server or using remote desktop.
To install the Administration Pack, you have one of two options. One, you can download the installer from the Microsoft site. Two, if you have THE Windows Server 2003 CD-ROM, in the \I386 folder there is an installer file called ADMINPAK.MSI.
