Adding systems to Microsoft Management Console

This is a question regarding the Microsoft Management Console that is used to start/stop SAP in version 4.6. Does anyone know how to add several systems from different servers to one console? I tried changing the console settings and adding the other systems and hostname in the form:
(hostname)

    Requires Free Membership to View

(instancenumber)
It seems to accept this input yet will always only show the locally installed system.


You need to copy these files into your PC's winntsystem32 directory:
-librfc32.dll
-sapmmc.dll
-sapstartsrv.exe

They are on the R/3 Kernel CD.
Then, register the DCOM typelibrary by typing: sapstartsrv -t -q Finally register the sapmmc.dll as follows: regsvr32 /s sapmmc.dll

Now you are ready to launch the MMC and add the SAP R/3 Snap-in and manage all your SAP servers.

This is topic is covered in my book "SAP Basis Administration ... A Step-by-Step Guide to Practical Daily Tasks and Activities", chapter 13, SAP R/3 Remote Management. A script called "SAP-r3-mmc-snapin.bat" is also included on the CD-ROM.
