you want to manage a domain, put in a member server name to manage a member
server, or a workstation name if you want to manage a workstation. If you have a
only a few servers or workstations to manage, you can put shortcuts on the
desktop. In the shortcut to manage \\serverA, the shortcut path would be usrmgr \\serverA. That is OK as such but I prefer a
commandline approach. I would create a batch file name serverA.bat with the
following contents:

c:\winnt\system32\usrmgr.exe \\serverA

I will have a batch file for each server, workstation or domain I want
to manage. For workstations and member servers, use the \\Servername syntax. For
domains, just use the domain name. For example to manage domain DomainA,
the domainA.bat file would be:

c:\winnt\system32\usrmgr.exe domainA

command shell and type the name of the server, workstation. or domain and User Manager for Domains opens for that server, workstation or
