  • To start Active Directory Users and Computers, open a Remote Desktop Connection to either a Windows 2000 domain controller or a member server that has Windows 2000 Administration Tools installed. You must log on to the server as a domain administrator in order to complete this procedure.

  • To save console settings, on the File menu, click Save.

  • You cannot administer Active Directory-based IPSec policy from a computer running Windows XP Home Edition.

  • To define Active Directory-based IPSec policy, you must have Group Policy administrative permissions. To manage local or remote IPSec policy for a computer, you must be a member of the Administrators group on the local or remote computer.

  • To manage policies in a remote domain, you must be using a computer that is a member of a domain that is trusted by the remote domain. You cannot configure policies in a remote domain from a computer that is a member of a workgroup (also known as a stand-alone computer).

  • To view the saved console, see Related Topics.

  • To revise your initial choice, you can start the Microsoft Management Console, add this snap-in again, and save the console again. If you require multiple configurations, you can save the console with another name.
