Windows 2000 Active Directory Survival Guide: Planning and Implementation

Windows 2000 Active Directory Survival Guide: Planning and Implementation

by RichardSchwartz (Author)


Windows 2000 is enjoying an even higher profile than Windows 95, making it one of the most anticipated software products of the last decade. Ask any NT Administrator, Why? and you may hear some unkind references to Microsoft's previous network operating system and its dreadful implementation of domains and trusts. At the heart of the new operating system lies a potential escape from these administrative nightmares, a new approach to systems management which provides robust security and scalability. Active Directory, the heart of Windows 2000 Server, will prove to be the most difficult of the myriad of new features to master. This equates to a vast need for education on this subject, which in turn translates into the need for this book. Windows 2000 Active Directory Survival draws on years of experience from the author, whose work with enterprise networking and large-scale NT implementations make him the perfect candidate to write such a publication. It is a solid and informative book, teaching not only the main points of the technology but also the inner workings of the operating system. It offers real-world insights into this new technology, taking the reader step-by-step through successful planning and implementation of Active Directory. In addition, it utilises contrasting views of prior releases of Windows NT to further reinforce the concepts of this new technology to the audience.
