mmc could not create the snap-in

I made an administration console on a primary SCCM server and customized the console for a helpdesk. When I run this on a secondary server it tells me "Mmc could not create the snap-in"
There is SCCM SP1 (with W2K3 SE SP2) on all the servers.

How to solve this in order to see my console on a secondary site?

(I first searched on this forum but couldn't find a solution)

    It is not supported to install the SCCM console on Secondary Site Servers.  Per Wally from MS:
     
    I did just get a confirmation from dev that we DO NOT support installing the admin console on secondary site servers. We only support the admin console on primary site servers (as far as site systems and site servers go).

    SCCM console doesn't need to be on the Secondary since all the setting are controlled from the primary console.

    How can you give access to someone else without giving access to the primary server? I don't won't any RDP connection to my primary server.

    Maybe installing the console with the install cd of SCCM? (I made a console from the wizard on my primary server)

    You install the console on the admins machine and set dcom to allow their connection, now they have not access to the primary server but they have access to the console information.

    Thanks but can a noob create a task sequence for example? I know I can make a custom admin console and set permissions on every option but can this be done?
