Try creating a shortcut to the tools on the server, this should get the
desired result.

OK. I've setup my ADLM on an NT 4.0 SP5 server, and everything works like a
charm. I can administer license and bury clients fine locally on the
server, but I just can't figure out how to remotely administer the license
usage via the ADLM tools. When I install the tools on my workstation and
try to run the control utility, I get a "no active servers" message and I
don't have the capability of making it look to the active server I have ADLM
running on... I also have network administrative privileges, so that isn't
the problem either. Does anybody know what I need to do? Thanks for the
help... :-)

I don't know about built in capabilities of the AdLM for remote admin. I
use a program called VNC to remotely connect to the server. It is just like
PcAnywhere, only it is free. You install the server portion on the computer
that you want to remotely control and then install the viewer on whatever
computer that you want to use.

Here is a link to the site where you can find more info about VNC and
download it.

Hope this helps :smileyhappy:

This works for the WINCNTRL.EXE, WINQUERY.EXE, and possibly the
WINRPT32.EXE. However, it does not work with the WINADMIN.EXE so it you
need to add more licenses you would have to do so from the server or you a
remote admin tool as I stated earlier. With the WINCNTRL.EXE tool you can
bury a client with the WINQUERY.EXE tool you can see the different stats of
the AdLM server and change the "hold time". This is probably what you would
do most of the time with remote administration.

But if you want to look like a god-like admin, you would not have to get off
of your butt for anything (except for hardware issues). This is where a
remote administation tool like PcAnywhere or VNC (or BO, if you dare) or
even SMS (on NT). Besides, it just looks cool to take control of a computer
remotely. :smileyhappy:

Michael,

Be sure to set the ACADSERVER variable on the system you are trying to run the
tools from.
